[26 October] Laptop Magazine ran a review on the ASUS Eee PC 701. After reading it, I totally agree with their view that “ASUS is forging a new class of device with the Eee PC. Yes, you can get a laptop with a bigger screen and better specs for the same amount of money, but this machine wasn’t designed to go toe-to-toe with bargain-basement Windows laptops. It’s an excellent secondary computer for households with children, and it’s a very good primary computer for novice PC users who never had the time or patience to master an operating system.” Think grannies or toddlers at home will love it.

[Updated: 31 October] A very nice review up from TweakTown, tons of pics and a good write-up, link here.
