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.
