Here is a great list of all the current and future ultra portable laptops. I am really starting to think about getting one for home / travel use. (Lilputing)
I had only heard of the EEE pc now realize there are a few others available. The main element I am interested in would be speed of start-up time, Wireless access, usb ports, and a larger screen. The current version of the EEE pc has a 7 inch screen. I am planning on waiting at least for the 8 inch screen.
So the final decision people will have to make is what OS, Windows or Linux. It sounds from my research that many people are opting for the Linux version.
