Of course there were also a few production units on the press event for us to put our hands on, but the most important announcement of the day is the fact that Microsoft will be collaborating with Asus to bring a Windows XP version of the Eee PC to market -- though presumed to be a watered down version of Windows XP, sort of like the Starter Edition. So far only the Linux version is available, but you can still install XP yourself if you have an external CD-ROM drive handy.

鍵盤和觸控版都小小的，可能比較適合 OL 和小朋友吧？
Tiny Keyboard and touchpad, probably more suited for kids then a blogger with big fingers.

Eee PC 和那隻傳說中的手機
Eee PC and "the" phone. Sorry folks, iPhone not included with purchase.
A cute little mouse sitting next to the Eee PC, unfortunately, it turns out that it ain't included...
Windows XP SP2 / Celeron M 900MHz / 504 (512MB) RAM
4G 的 SSD 裝了 Office 以後，就只剩 550MB 了...
It leaves you about 550MB with just Windows and Office installed on a 4GB system.
開 Excel 大約要十八秒，而開 IE 卻幾乎是瞬開。大概這就是軟體有沒有事先載入記憶體的分別吧？
It takes around 18 sec to boot up Excel, but IE opens almost instantaneously. There is a bias here though, since IE should have already been cached in the memory. We were not allowed to reboot the thing, so no figure on that.
Cute little models~
