Best Buy gets Windows-based Eee PC


Windows Eee Pc

I’ve been contemplating picking up an Asus Eee PC for those times when I’m on the road and don’t really want to mess with carrying my larger laptop around. Don’t get me wrong, I like having all of the functions and features of my Windows machine, it’s just that when you’re covering a big show, you don’t want to lug something that large around. So why haven’t I picked one up yet? Because I want to actually be able to see it and use it first. Thankfully I’ll be able to walk into my local Best Buy and do just that.

According to Asus, their new 4GB Windows XP (yes, Windows) version will soon be stocked at Best Buy stores throughout the country. The system will be identical to the original 4GB model, with the only difference being the operating system. Expect to see these at your local store during the first half of April for $399.

Can you save the $100 dollars for the xp license if you promise to load ubuntu on it? or will they offer a linux version? to me that’s at least as interesting as the small form-factor and price.
