    Saw this on

    From AsusTek:
    CPU & Chipset: Intel mobile CPU & chipset
    OS: Linux/ Microsoft Windows XP compatible
    Communication: 10/100 Mbps Ethernet; 56K modem
    WLAN: WiFi 802.11b/g
    Graphic: Intel UMA
    Memory: 512MB, DDR2-400
    Storage: 4/ 8/ 16GB Flash
    Webcam: 300K pixel video camera
    Audio: Hi-Definition Audio CODEC; Built-in stereo speaker; Built-in microphone
    Battery Life: 3hrs (4 cells: 5200mAh, 2S2P)
    Dimension & Weight: 22.5 x 16.5 x 2.1~3.5cm, 0.89kg

    So, the screen is small. But the price is right at $199.

    Here is the original Anandtech thread:


    Uses linux. Seems like a much better bargain than Palm's $599 machine.

    It looks nice, the price is almost strange, 199$?? Talk about cheap :D

    Although, 3 hour battery would drain very fast don't you think?

    I don't know if Apple is going to head this Ultraportable way, let's hope so, and if they do, let them build a MacBook Mini the way we are expecting. But no way it will cost 199$, more like 399$ :D
