Eee PC

Briefly had my hands on one of the Eee 900s. The new work intern has one. Damm, in a store it would definitely encourage impulse buying. If it wasn’t bolted down to a shelf/counter top. I still wish it was $200-300 instead of $400-600 and the bigger screen than the first Eee 2/4G seems a must. Seriously almost as sexy as playing with an Air at BestBuy. Hell give the Eee an air shell and it would definately out sex the Air even running XP.

After doing some price comparisoning the basic Eee 900 is $150 more with XP over Linux. Microsoft maybe keeping XP around for the mini laptops but they are collecting margins better than ever for XP.
