    Is this going to be the first ASUS-branded product to be sold in Best Buy?

    You need 2gb of ram for vista to be good. XP you need 512

    Indeed. :( They'd have to vLite the hell out of Vista to make it work on the Eee PC. At least, until a better hardware version of the notebook arrives (Intel Atom-based?)...
