smudges

That shot of the iphone, psp and eee shows what I love about my 900. Like the 701 in the shot, it is matte. The other two devices in that shot are so incredibly smudged and covered with fingerprints thanks to their glossy finish. I am so annoyed that all of the eees with the Atom are now glossy ;) That matte finish looks so much better to me than how the psp and iphone look in that shot. Obviously not everyone feels that way (shiny!) but a choice would be nice. Why not white, black or matte?

"Besides, Defender only eats up 30 MB of RAM."

And we're cool with a background process using 8% of our RAM ;) I recently repaired a laptop I used years back when overseas with its stunning 16 MB or RAM. It's just how things change I guess.
