Clearly it is the Asus Eee PC.

This is the year of the tiny Linux desktops: XO, Classmate, Eee PC, Linutop...

I know I want one, and if it's not a gift from someone, it will be a gift to myself. Possibly even before Christmas, really just waiting for the combination of payday and the release of the black model in mainland China. Of course if the 8g model is coming, that is a little tempting (though maybe not $100 tempting) as well.

just saw the request for pics, specs, links....

all are found at eeeuser.com, but the short of it is, a 2-8 GB SSD (no hard drive), 256mb-1gb ram, 1.8? ghz intel mobile cpu sd reader, wireless+wired ethernet, 7" screen, <1kg. Oh, and no windows offered yet (though it works and is planned to be offered)

In other words, small, light, linux-based laptop for 1/4 the price of any 10 or 11" laptop out there.

The Eee PC is the hands down winner.

Eee PC is the winner for me, can't wait to get mine.

Eee PC might be the laptop of the year, not just the Linux laptop of the year.
