by the way, i saw an eee in a shop which was either with a 2Go RAM or a 16Go SDHC.... do you think the eee needs 2GO RAM ?


there's no such thing as too much memory or too much storage smile.gif

when the asus fff comes out - the eee's successor (I'm making up the name) then I might be interested in one for my daughter. A bit more memory, a modestly larger screen higher res, and I think it'd be great... once I install a decent OS (suse :-)


Aye ... and for myself, I'm fine with 7" or 8" or even 9" ... I just hope they trim down on that bezel. Likewise for the Z, I would love my C1000 even more if it has a consistently thin bezel all round. That's partly what makes Thinkpad, Sony Vaios, macbook & iTouch or iPhones that bit sexier. smile.gif

The trick is having a useable keyboard, thin bezel, respectable screen, all in a handy form factor.

Good thingie going for the eeepc is that it is hot in the stoves and development is coming along aggressively while the Z is not available at all. sad.gif smile.gif

Just a fact about my real use: upon loading Xfwm and synaptic (set to always look for new packages), only less than 200MB of RAM is used. And I've got no plan to run XP/Vista, so no need to boost up RAM for Ramdisk, pagefile, blah, and my 701 remains perfectly comfortable with the stock 512MB. wink.gif

Agree. Thin bezel is a hallmark of aesthetic value on gadgets. The Eee PC, the Z, N810, most UMPCs all fail this.
But thinner bezel means more power for display, and cost of production, unless a newer and better and less power-hungry processor is used (this may probably come true for fff). And the keyboard is already maximally minimal (for real touchtyping), so reducing the bezel mustn't further trim down the keyboard.
Also remember what makes the Eee so hot is the magical price tag, as well as quite a reasonable battery life.
Of course, I'd definitely love to have a ggg, and more perfectly, a zzz, then I will finally retire my z. tongue.gif

I got to handle an Eee for a while at the store today and was disappointed to find that the keyboard is too big for two-thumb typing while holding the unit in my hands, the capability that makes the Z such a great mobile device.
