Two people at work have them and rave about them.

They like them for the sitting in front of the TV browsing the web. And apparently from pressing the power-on button to getting the desktop up and usable is sub-15 seconds.

Apparently you can plug any normal USB device in and it works, and you can connect it to a TV or normal monitor.

If you are so inclined you can install Windows XP.

Daz bought one just before xmas & loves it!
He'll tell you all about it when he get's back from OZ

There is a newer version due out with a 10" screen & 16gig soon I believe so I'd wait for that....

Look on YouTube - there are hundreds of videos of people getting half decent gaming performance out of them - amazing!!!!

16gig solid state ?

Nice Smile

What will the price be though ? 200 is really tempting but 300 starts to get less so.

They seem practically impossible to come-by, without some massive mark up.

If anyone sees any in stock - 4GB - Black preferably, give a yell.

Best place to get one from is ToysRus - they always seem to have them in stock....

OR: http://eeestock.cpjackson.co.uk/

When we were looking tho - just about everywhere lied about having stock - so CALL first!!!

I tried Toys R Us last night...they only look like they have them in stock...after you have paid for it and queued up at the collection point for 20 minutes they tell you that the bit of the label that says "Consult area supervisor" in small print means it is available on pre-order only.
