The more I read about the Asus Eee PC, the more I want one.
Not that I'll get one any time soon. All Australian stock has sold out minutes after they went on sale and the waiting lists are as long as a day at the office. And then there's the $500 price tag, which given our current financial situation means luxuries are things we pass away. And I won't even mention the fact that, to be honest, I don't really need one.
But still, there's nothing wrong with dreaming, and there's quite a lot to dream about here. Essentially, the Eee is a very small notebook (7" screen). At 1 kilo, this is a truly portable PC that you will carry with you without breaking your back!
It's running Linux, so there's no Microsoft contamination there, and its packed with open source applications and a wireless connection which make it the real thin client, the one to carry along when traveling or whenever you have a bag with you (which to me means most of the time). All the applications you need, be it Skype or Google Docs, as well as all the real storage space you require, are just an internet connection away. You can listen to music on it, type on it, process photos on it - it's the essential blogging machine.
It's got something to cover everything you need in a second PC that you can take with you, and it's even got a VGA output so that you can watch videos on your big TV!
