    Oh come one - you are assuming that it's 80GB of SSD ?????

    No way in hell.

    What is perfectly obvious to me is that ASUS have looked at the MSI Wind, got scared that some of its target audience will simply see the numbers rather than the technology, and have decided to copy the same 80Gig hard drive.
    Simple.
    Bet a tenner on it.

    Asus have lost sight of the original idea of having a small cheap notebook the current 900 is £330 this one is going to be even more.

    1.45Kg is the give away, thats a fair bit heavier than the previous models and I'm guessing its down to a full fat hard drive.

    Re: Headlines - 10in ASUS Eee 1000 offers more than just a bigger screen

    Hmm, i might have been a little over exuberent in my opening statement...
    Eee PC 901 and 1000-series to start at $550 - Engadget

    Although they concur that the 80GB will indeed be traditional hard disk (so i was right ), it seems that they will offer a 40GB SSD!
    Now that does shock me, i thought 20GB (4 + 16) would be quite expensive....
    Seems like the days of affordable SSD's are a-comin'.

    /me smells windows

    to get cut-rate XP, the maximum specs for any subnote are a 10.2" screen, 80GB disk, 1GHz CPU (exceptions for C7 up to 1.6GHz, or Atom up to 1.66GHz), and 1 GiB RAM (note they say "up to" 2 GiB, the windows version MUST ship with less for them to keep costs down)

    Re: Headlines - 10in ASUS Eee 1000 offers more than just a bigger screen

    You know, i've bleated on about this before, but about a year ago I bought a second hand Compaq n410c from ebay for £150.
    It had a mobile P3 (scaled from 800Mhz to 1.2Ghz dependant on conditions), came with 256MB RAM that i cheaply upgraded to 768MB, and a 30GB hard drive.
    11 or 12" screen (cant remember), with 1024 x 768 resolution.
    Weight: 1.5Kg, battery lasts for around 1 1/2 hours (it's second hand, but i live with it). It has no optical drive, but £15 bought me an extension bay / port replicator with an optical drive & floppy too!

    And ebay still sells them by the ton.
    They run XP like a dream, and I dual boot with Ubuntu also (but the 16MB Radeon chip doesnt like the extra effects so much).

    The only real issue is no wireless, but since i use draft N, i have plugged in the PCMCIA card that came with the router.

    I'd recommend these little compaq's to anyone for the money.
