    Because the specs of the MSI are better and it costs $10 less. ;)

    Both are nearly the same machines. My vote goes to the Asus EeePC since it's Ion Graphics couple with a Dual core Atom processor edge out the MSI.

    Also cause Tiger shakes his fist at it

    Is ION better than 3200 graphics? I was going to say the MSI as well due to the better processor, but when it comes to watching video and stuff like that, either cpu would do.

    How about the 3200 vs the ION graphics? I can't find a good comparison anywhere!

    Can you find me a real laptop under 500$ that has a battery life over 5 hours? If so, I'll take it. I'm just having trouble with that part. I have 6 back to back courses and need something that'll last me for Pokemon and paper writing during that time.

    Nobody takes papers in pen and paper anymore.

    Plus, I'm way too lazy to do anything in school. I need that battery life.

    I am not too sure about getting a netbook now, because the current gen netbook has outlived its usefulness. Between the two, I will pick the MSI because its much more powerful.

    I don't care about looks. The battery life on that computer looks like it leaves a lot to be desired...
