MojoKid writes "The Asus Eee PC is now available for sale in the US as of today and there is
more than enough buzz about this new, low-cost, ultra-portal computer that ships
custom KDE-built interface for Linux. Though the machine has been
viewed by some as a response to the XO-1 laptop from OLPC, but it appears to
be less toy-like in its design.
This full evaluation shows the Eee PC is built on Intel mobile Celeron
technology and the
910GML Express chipset. Power consumption was measured at
a miserly 15 Watts idle and 18 Watts under load with battery life in excess
of 3.5 hours. There is also an abundance of software pre-installed on
the machine, like Open Office applications, Skype, Pigeon and even a web cam." Link to Original Source
