Hardware, Embedded Systems "After the incredible success of the Asus Eee PC, other manufacturers are ready to get their piece of the pie. This means that within the next few months we are going to see this segment go from just two devices - the Eee PC and the Nanobook (which has yet to come out in the U.S. but which we have been hearing about for some time) - to many more." Another article on the Eee says: "Five of the 10 best-selling notebooks, including the top three models this weekend do not run Windows or Mac OS X. In fact, they are different models of the same diminutive notebook the Asus Eee PC - that runs on Linux."

my ideal ultra-portable:

9" screen displaying 1024x600
1GB memory
8GB Flash drive
SDHC memory card slot
Silverthorne/Isaiah CPU
OpenGL 3.0 capable unified shader graphics
attractive case like EEEPC (not like the godawful cloudbook)

running opensuse with a KDE 4.1 desktop. ;)
