    Yup. I sold the ext hdd and now looking at 16gb SDcard. So my baggage will be lighter by 100gm.
    After all, my photos might not require 16gb of storage. Beside, I still have two 4gb sdcard.
    Think this is a better choice than the ext hdd (additional weight).

    There is an image on the cd-rom that came with Eee PC. Can always restore it to factory setup.

    That's simply not true

    As a matter of fact, the eeePC user manual gives detailed instructions as to how windows xp can be installed onto the eeePC. How can warraty be void??

    IS the screen resolution large enough to do any useful photo editing?

    Competition

    MSI Readying Diamondville Low-Cost Laptop
    Micro-Star International is working on an ultra-low cost notebook PC based on Intel's Diamondville microprocessor.
    Dan Nystedt, IDG News Service
    Monday, January 28, 2008 8:00 AM PST

    Taiwanese laptop computer maker Micro-Star International (MSI) is already hard at work on an ultra-low cost notebook PC based on Intel's Diamondville microprocessor to compete against rival Asustek Computer's Eee PC.

    Asustek created the Eee PC laptop to sell in emerging markets such as India. It carries an Intel Celeron processor, weighs less than a kilogram, has a 7-inch LCD (liquid crystal display) and can connect to the Internet wirelessly. The lowest-priced version costs NT$7,999 (US$248).

    MSI is working on a similar device for the ultra-low cost notebook market, using an extremely low voltage, low cost microprocessor from Intel called Diamondville. Intel has said it will formally unveil the chip at the Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai this April.

    "When Diamondville is ready, our project will be ready," said an MSI executive, speaking on condition of anonymity. He indicated that MSI plans to launch its ultra-low cost notebook in July or August, but declined to offer further details.

    Cloudbook = EasyNote XS = Nanobook

    If the Cloudbook makes it into Singapore, PB will no longer have business. They're selling the EasyNote XS at $1300.

    Here are the specifications:
    Nanobook: http://www.umpcportal.com/products/product.php?id=114
    Cloudbook:
    http://www.umpcportal.com/products/product.php?id=167
    EasyNote XS:
    http://www.umpcportal.com/products/product.php?id=122

    The only difference is that the EasyNote XS comes with 1GB of RAM.

    Quote from Engadget "Eee PC killer coming from Acer?"

    Is Acer prepping to go head-to-head with ASUS in the surprisingly hot low-cost laptop market? A Chinese-language Commercial Times report says so. The laptops are expected to carry 8- and 9-inch displays when launched "late in the first quarter or early second quarter" and priced to compete directly with the Eee. Of course, ASUS is planning their own refresh about that time so Acer (and Everex) had better keep on its toes.

    I like its small size though its design not exactly pretty. I saw it the other day at one of the shops.

    A nifty little gadget that'll fit well with my need for a portable on-site photo storage, viewer, and for surfing web and editing/reading documents on the go. Managed to get to recognise my FAT32-formatted 2.5" USB HDD so space may not be a problem for storage but I'll probably get a SDHC card as the HDD is not the fastest nor most energy-usage-friendly device to run programs off frequently... LCD is acceptable for viewing photos. Too bad can't colour-calibrate it.
