    dunno just picked up an old gateway laptop off of fleabay for 290$ and it was an intel centrino 1.6GHZ with 512MBram, 40gb hard drive, XP Pro, 15.4" screen and the battery still works great.

    guess it all depends on the targeted country, but I'd say an older laptop can still work just as great (if not better).

    Aye, good deal, but does that old Gateway weight only 2 lbs? ;) That's the attraction with this Asus model.

    That's one of the best parts. It has a SD card slot, which you can use to really boost the storage space. Also, the USB 2.0 ports mean you can easily add an external HDD.
