>> And we are here taking a look at the Asus's Eee [assumed spelling] PC window's version. If there's such thing as a cold hit in the lap top universe, the Eee PC definitely fits. Now, the original Eee PC had Linux as its operating system. And it came with Firefox and Open Office. You could surf the web and work on office documents. We at long last have a version of the Eee PC with Windows XP, and of course it's still in the same 399 pricing. You can get these at Best Buy or anywhere. [Inaudible] wise, this new version of the Eee PC is identical to the original, same white plastic case. You can also get it in black and some other colors. Same tiny chiclet [assumed spelling] size keys, same full gig [inaudible] hard-drive, so you don't have a lot of hard-drive space, but there is a SD slot right in the side. So you can just pop another four-gig card and double your hard-drive size for about fifty bucks. It's got three USB ports and a VGA out; the Macbook Air doesn't have that. And for a very low powered laptop, it runs Window XP pretty smoothly. In fact, laptops like this have become so popular that Microsoft has extended the shelf life of Window's XP, keeping it on the market much longer then they anticipated just to fill the demand for the this new breed of low cost laptop. [Inaudible] for the Window's XP, this is identical to the Eee PC we looked at last fall, so we stand by what we said then. This is a fantastic secondary or travel laptop, or something you can give the kids because at 399, if you leave it in the back of cab or it falls off the table, it's not the end of the world.
