Hardware, Embedded Systems "The Asus Eee PC challenges many conventional assumptions about mobile computing. The daring, diminutive device combines a svelte subnotebook form factor with a unique Linux software platform and a budget-friendly price - factors that could make this unprecedented product a mainstream marvel. Last week, my colleague Jon described the Eee PC as game-changing: a characterization that we will put to the test in this review."

A comparable PDA, if it even exists, would be vastly more expensive and have an even worse keyboard.

Lightweight laptops are much more expensive than this as well, albeit more powerful.

This gives a nice compromise at a pretty reasonable price. And the proof of it's quality can be seen by the fact that it's selling out everywhere. I've already seen it on eBay, selling for about 20% more than it retails for!

Seriously now, what competition is there at that price? OLPC or a low-end PDA?
