    Under enemy pressure ASUSTeK is now being reported to bring forward the launch of its 10-inch Eee PC to June 3rd, in an attempt to surpass rivals MSI and Acer.
    There aren't any further details just yet, but if the info is correct the launch date is near.

    Its unbelievable how this time last year this market was almost nonexistent if not at all. And now UMPC's are the hottest thing since napalm :D

    Laptops should never have been the price of a desktop pc!
    Everyone will eventually have a laptop or something simular.

    I think Laptop demands are on the rise as part prices decrease and technology gets better.

    That's because last year at this time, they had the wrong idea. They were packing all kinds of needless features into them, and charging $1200+. It's about time somebody realized people only wanted these UMPCs for basic internet/media usage.
