I did it, I actually ordered an Asus Eee PC. It’s the tiny little laptop that runs Linux (and supposedly Mac OS X!)
I’m hyped. I can’t wait to be mobile again. Despite the fact that Gabe gave me a very nice G4 this week, I do miss a machine that’s not stuck on a desk. I’m pretty confident I can toss this in my backpack and not even notice it’s there until I need it. I couldn’t do that with the Wallstreet, or even the smaller G4 iBook. The Eee PC fills a niche, for sure. In fact, some believe Apple will come out with a tiny laptop like this (well, except it’ll cost $1000+ but it comes with a free spinning beachball!)
I’m sure you’ll see more posts once I get this thing. And yes, the waiting is the hardest part! In the meantime, checkout the eeeuser.com forums, to see what Eee PC owners are saying.
