Yesterday, Dino considered purchasing the Asus Eee PC . This notebook is incredibly small, with a 7” screen and weighing a mere 0.92kg. Runs linux or WinXP, includes an Ethernet interface, WLAN, up to 1GB of memory, 8GB solid state drive, and a built in camera for about US$ 499.
Today, HP is offering the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC at the same price and includes half the amount of memory and disk capacity as compared to the Asus Eee. However, for $100 more, it can be upgraded to 1GB of memory, a 120GB hard disk, and Windows Vista OS. Oh, and the screen size is almost two inches wider.
Dino is wondering if he should wait a while to see if another company releases something BFC (better, faster, and cheaper) or go ahead and order the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC. Decisions, decisions, decisions. Now, where’s the credit card?
