I have been really looking to replace my EEE PC 700 series laptop with something a bit newer. The low resolution of the PC has finally gotten to me, although I really like the computer in all other ways. I have been waiting, and waiting for the Dell machine to final be released, but I am starting to get tired of waiting. I started looking into the Acer Aspire One, and with the price drop I nearly bought one. However, I watched a video on what it takes to upgrade the RAM, and I am back to waiting for the Dell to arrive.
If the Dell turns out to be a descent machine at the $299 price point they are talking about, I will likely bite at that machine. Otherwise, I will likely jump back to ASUS and grab an EEE PC 901. The extra battery life on the 901 makes up for the extra cost, and ASUS does have a $50 off rebate right now.
Way to hard to add RAM…or maybe I am just spoiled by the EEE PC
