I’ve been looking at the ASUS Eee PC. It looks pretty sweet, the Eee 900 Series was recently released.
Here’s some info for people to lazy to click the link to the wikipedia article:
The ASUS Eee PC (pronounced as the letter e, IPA /iË/) is a subnotebook computer designed by ASUS and Intel. At the time of its introduction, it was noted for its combination of light weight, Linux-based operating system, solid-state drive and relatively low cost. In the UK, the ASUS Eee PC is also distributed as the RM Asus Minibook by RM.
According to ASUS, the name Eee derives from “the three Es,” an abbreviation of their advertising slogan for the device: “Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to play”. The device may fall into a newly defined category of Netbooks.
ASUSTek is committed to meet the requirements of the GNU General Public License.
I think you can pick one up for around $400 to $600 AU.
Definitely worth checking out. Eeepc product page.
