Asus EeePC X101

It should cost less than 200 $ or 170 €. Here is a small video of that nifty new toy :

From what I know it should come with a 250 or 320 Gbs HD and will run on Linux. I'll definitely keep you more in touch once I'll have news.

Well not a netbook ... but

Well I know this is not a netbook but it sounds promising, it's a bit like the peek, its a small portable device 7 inch wide that run under Android 2.1 :

The Binatone :

It won't have a touchscreen but it will have QWERTY keyboard and a battery lifetime of over 6 hours and it could fit in your pocket !

It should cost around 150 €. Do you like it ?

Not really a netbook but quite nifty !

I know it's not really a netbook ... but it looks pretty nice ... it's called the Peek :

What is it ? Basicly it is something that just let you connect to your emails and let you send an unlimited number of e-mails. It should arrive in Europe soon. It's great because in Europe the roaming fees are just awful and if you travel a lot that small gadget could let you save a small fortune.

I don't really know it specs but here are some pictures :

As you can see it will be available in a lot of colors, which one would be your favorite ?

Personally I kinda like the pink one : 

EEE PC 1011 PX

Asus gonna release in France a small netbook running on Ubuntu : the Asus EEE PC1011 PX :

It will have the following spec : Netbook 10,1'' - Intel Atom N455 (1,66 GHz) - 320 Go - RAM 2048 Mo - Intel GMA 3150 - Ubuntu

I'm not a huge fan of Ubuntu, but it's pretty cheap as the release price is only 249 €.
