Eeek – it’s an Asus Eee PC – nice….

Asus has started to release the ultra-portable Eee-PC into South Africa:

Thin as a slice of toast (almost: 225 x 165 x 21mm), I am waiting for the 8GB model to be launched. The Eee PC 8G features a 7″ display and weighs in at only 0.92kg. The perfect form-/weight-factor to take it anywhere. It features a 8GB dependable solid-state disk and the battery power lasts between 3 – 3 1/2 hours.

The Eee PC comes pre-installed with Linux (Xandros) but also supports Windows XP. Due to the solid-state disk the ultraportable boots into Linux in a matter of a few seconds.
