Hardware, Embedded Systems When Asus released its Eee PC, praise was almost universal. People loved the device's size, low price, and the fact it came with Linux appealed to many geeks. Consequently, the device sold rather well, and was a hit for Asus. However, the device had two major shortcomings: its small screen (7" 800x480), and its relatively short battery life. Asus took the critcism to heart, and came up with the Asus Eee PC 900, which has a 9" 1024x600 screen. So, what's the verdict?

"Personally, I see the Eee PC as the MacBook Air 'for the people', and ever since it initial release, I felt strangely drawn towards the little device."

No, the Macbook Air is for people who are concerned about how they appear to other people. Bling, basically. The ASUS Eee PC is for people who actually _need_ an ultra-portable PC.

A rubbish comparison and another reason why OSNews is a worse site for your presence.
