Personal Electronics buzz

Excerpt: Asus Eee PC 901 Laptop Computer I am so totally jazzed. A tech friend of mine in Australia can get me an Asus Eee PC 901 in a few days. The great news is the Windows and Linux version are priced the same at $619 USD. I have been waiting to hear when the US will get the Eee 901 and it seems Europe and Asia got first picks. Asustek also announced a price reduction on the Eee 900 because it looks like it may eventually fall out of the line up.
Summary: The original Eee PC was an intriguing device because it was just a step above a Blackberry, a basic web client device for about $400. The Eee PC 901, meanwhile, is something else: With Windows XP installed, it's a strikingly complete little laptop PC. With a suggested retail price of $599 and , the 901 also treads into "real laptop" territory in terms of pricing.
Excerpt: Asus has launched a bigger (and better) version of its popular Eee PC. Dubbed the Eee PC 901, this new version includes a lot of welcome improvements from the previous model, including more screen real estate, storage, and processing power. Asus also now offers the 901 with either Linux or Windows XP, and both versions cost the same too.
Pros: Extremely portable; great battery life; good screen size; Linux or Windows XP
Cons: Small keyboard; drive partitioning could cause issues for Windows users
Summary: The Eee PC 901 remains an attractive proposition for computing on the move. With its larger battery and lower-power processor, itâ€™s not far from achieving a full working dayâ€™s use without the use of mains power - and that ought to be the goal for any ultraportable that has aims to be a dependable netbook.
Summary: All in all, the Eee PC 901 is a good evolutionary step in the Eee line. But when you consider that the MSI Wind NB, which features a larger keyboard and a bigger 10-inch screen, costs $100 less, this mini-notebook becomes less attractive. With the promise of the 10-inch Eee PC 1000 and Eee PC 1000H just around the corner, some may want to play the waiting game.
Pros: Speedier Intel Atom processor, Very good battery life, More attractive glossy design, Multi-touch trackpad, Handy resolution-switching button,
