Hardware, Embedded Systems "A little over a week ago, reviews of Asus's Eee PC 701 started to trickle out onto the Internet. Some of the larger publications, like CNet and LAPTOP Magazine got their hands on the unit first, but as it has become more widely available sites like HotHardware and PC Perspective have now put out their own reviews of the Eee PC. The overall verdict is fairly unanimous: the device's keyboard is a bit cramped, but in terms of price, performance, and features the Eee PC hits the trifecta. Indeed, Asus appears to have gotten so many things right with the Eee PC that it could be a game-changer in the mobile market, in terms of both hardware and software."

Well one of the nice things about the Asus Eee PC is of course the fact that in opposite to other smaller devices it's a "real" computer ;-). That means that people can run all linux-x86 binaries that work on their desktop PC or on their larger notebook. Also you can just plug in a larger USB keyboard, a USB-mouse, maybe an external 2.5"-USB-harddisk and a large LCD monitor and there won't be much of a difference compared to any other "real" PC (except for lower performance). Try to do that with any other "smaller" device :-)
