Eee pc slim laptop! Small wonder delivers big hype
Slim computers generally run your wallet over $2,000 a pop. Get ready for a wonderful new computer that weighs 2lbs (six and a half by nine inches and 1 inch thick) and costs exactly the same as the iPhone.
Made by high-end laptop maker Asus, the Eee PC is a slim, full-fledged computer. Eee PC has a respectable seven-inch screen, and sacrificing a thick and heavy hard drive it instead features 4GB of flash memory. Now, this little guy can't replace your super computer, but it's Linux-based OS makes it easy to create both open-source/free and Windows Word docs. There's built in wi-fi, so your Eee can play with it's bigger computer friends.
This little tiny, eeeny, elegantly pearl-colored guy is perfect for your purse, and if you still want to make calls there's alway Skype and the new Skype phone. You've got some options for a business person on the run, who's trapped in their Verizon, Team Mobile, Sprint, etc. contract, waiting for an iPhone or next generation iPhone.
For me, it's a close tie, but to be clear, this small wonder is going to deliver big hype in the coming weeks!
