I’m usually not much for gadget lust, but for some reason I find myself really interested in the Asus Eee PC, a $400 900Mhz laptop with a 7″ screen and a small flash disk that runs Linux.

I don’t know why I’m so tempted, I’ve already got a little laptop, my 12″ Dell D400 — I think it’s that it’s so little and not “I’m carrying a laptop today” fragile that you could carry it more like a book. It’s decently kitted out, too, with built-in wifi and wired Ethernet, external VGA, an MMC/SD reader, and a webcam.

I think I’ll probably hold off until they start showing up secondhand when their early adopters get tired of them. (I’m glad I’m now in a city where people use Craigslist.)

Any of you guys pick one of these up yet? (deviant-, I’m looking at you!)

Also, until the Air costs $400, you are not permitted to suggest a MacBook Air instead.
