    ASUS responds to Eee source code violations

    OLPC and Asus Eee battle for ultra mobile supremacy

    LAPTOP has thrown the OLPC and Eee into a battle of wills and found that (sorry to spoil it for you) the Eee is the superior machine for the money. Just barely, though.

    Those lucky pants-wearing geeks over at LAPTOP got their grubby mitts on the new Asus Eee PC 701 and gave it a full review. The verdict? Four out of five stars and an Editors’ Choice award. Not bad, huh? There will be many who say that for $400 you could buy a full-sized basic laptop running Vista and that to spend the same amount of money on this thing would be downright foolish.
