The Eee PC is finally available for purchase
The ASUS Eee PC coverage has been quite fierce here on

one day earlier
than originally expected.
Newegg is only offering one model of the Eee PC: the 4G model. The 8.9" x 6.5" x 1.4", 2-pound Eee PC comes standard with an Intel Celeron M ULV 900MHz processor, a 4GB SSD, 512MB of DDR2 memory, a 7" 800x480 display, 802.11g wireless and three USB 2.0 ports.
The Eee PC 4G also comes equipped with an Asus-optimized version of Xandros Linux. Asus will offer a version of Windows XP on the Eee PC at a later date.
Battery life for the Eee PC 4G is pegged at around 3.5 hours according to most of the reviews from around the web. The battery used in the device has four cells and is rated at 5200 mAh.
Although the reported price for authorized resellers of the Eee PC is as low as $199, Newegg has priced the notebook at the
suggested retail price of $399.99
. You'll also cough up $10.03 for 3-day shipping.

If you're going to swap the EEE's OS with Windows XP, you'll definitely want the 4g version.
That kind of space, gets you a "barebones" XP installation, some old games (MAME, emulators of old machines and the likes), an MS office installation, your working documents and... some divx movies to watch on the go.
With 2gbs you'd be tighter for that kind of use.
The reason I won't buy is not the price, but the size. I need something like the fore coming Fujitsu Lifebook, but I'd like it to be as cheap as this one is.
I'd never buy an OQO or Vaio UTX because they're overkill and overpriced for the kind of use I want to give it... By now, I'm getting away with an HP Ipax hx2795b which did cost me more than what this EEE pc does cost, and hasn't even half of its power, even though I can do most of the things I want on the go (no keyboard, though... the attachable ones would defeat its portability for me)
