    got mine this week.... 189 for white 4GB with 512 RAM.

    Tried ubuntu on it yesterday and reverted it to the original linux... couldn't be bothered with all that code in terminal!!

    Guy at work keeps waving his XP "lite" infront of my face... silly man!

    I wont be putting XP, or an XP Lite build not interested in corrupting the sleek design with XP. I've already had a play for a couple of weeks with a 2gb version and was perfectly happy with the linux distro it has installed as default. For me there are no benefits in changing the OS.

    200 was my price, i could do with slightly small fingers hahha

    I have 2 eeepc's. One with XP and one with the standard Xandros distro on

    I do like the tabbed interface on the eeepc, but to do stuff at school, you do need to put XP on it, or at the very least hack the eeepc so that you can get to the proper OS behind the tabs

    You can get the best of both worlds, by enabling the start menu in the 'simple interface' http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?pid=9249#p9249

    I can't wait to try KDE4, its supposed to be less bloated than kde3
