Asus Eee PC 2G Surf launches, 8G available at Newegg

The low cost Eee PC is one of the hottest items this holiday season and Asus has expanded its ultra-portable notebook family ahead of Christmas with the recent addition of the $299 2G Surf and the $499 8G models.

As you can probably guess by its name, the Asus Eee PC 2G Surf boasts 2GB of flash memory. It also comes with 512MB of DDR2 memory, a 4-cell 4400 mAh battery good for 2.8 hours of use, and is the first Eee PC model to be available in “Blush Pink”, “Sky Blue” and “Lush Green” colors. The $499 8G model, as previously reported, ups the specs with an 8GB SSD and 1GB of DDR2 memory. The new models are available for purchase at Newegg.

In other news, some guy known as “Jkk” has posted one of the coolest Eee PC mods yet. He managed to add a touch screen to his Eee using a $60 7-inch car kit he bought from eBay and it seems to work seamlessly with both pen and finger. Check the full video here.

Boy, I'd REALLY LOVE to have one of these ultra sweet mobile PC's. I'd be SO happy if Santa slid down the chimney and was kind enough to grant those of lesser computer hardware the luxury of such a wonderful and well crafted device.Julio...are you listening man? I am not above begging and pleading here. Ah who am I kidding. Being married I am used to both begging and pleading. I am just hoping in this case that the begging and pleading does not land on deaf ears.:)

They are a real step forward.Not exactly a powerhouse - but that's not what you want one for. They are a great mobile internet platform. Personally, I would find their specs more than enough to run Java / Eclipse / MySQL / Subversion - so its a handy little platform for whipping out and doing some coding / hacking too. I am certainly looking into getting one.
