Finally Asus decided to launch the Eee PC!  But personally, its two weeks to late for me because I just purchased an iPod Touch (which I eventually hacked to run 3rd Party Apps).  If my funds allow me, I'll probably get one next year as my 3rd laptop -- which I plan to become my workhorse and main mobile unit.  Besides it will take a couple more weeks before this impressive piece of of technology reaches the Philippine shore.

In the meantime, let me continue to enjoy my hacked iPod Touch.

Is there any news, preferably official, as to how much the 8G would cost? :)
