Sweet. I might actually be able to use a little XP machine at these specs. People are probably going to make noise about the thing costing $549 (more than expected, I think), but really it’s still an incredible bargain and the hardware bump allays the concerns many had about getting an Eee. It’s got a gig of RAM now and 12 or 20 gigs of solid-state hard drive space (12 for XP, 20 for Linux), plus the new 9-inch screen at 1024×600. It’s already showing up outside the US, but us Yanks will be getting our hands on it come May 12.
