owning both the aspire one and the eeepc 901, i'd say the aspire one
has a much much nicer feel, the eeepc out performs it vastly and has a
nicer screen for use on the move... the battery life is a decent 4 1/2
hrs with power saving on (default auto config)

honestly, i wish i'd waited for the next gen aspire one though, it'll
have a bigger screen and i seem to recall reading it IS compatible
with linux - but don't quote me, i read a lot of articles!

sit tight, wait for the next gen prices to drop, kav!
