    I’d like to get information on where it’s gonna be launched here in Manila. Also, please email me the recommended price since I seriously comparing the eeePC 1000 with the Wind U100.

    I would appreciate your reply. Thanks.

    Price of the 1000h in the US has gone down to $599, from $699 – see newegg. Will they also release the 1000h on the same day? Or will they also make bitin like what Acer is doing with the Aspire One with 120gb HD and Windows XP…

    Just got an MSI Wind… so far so good. just having problem connecting the bluetooth to my Nokia phone!
    The battery life is also short.. but this one has 80GB hard drive making it truly fully functional. 40 GB is too small for many applications to be installed.. and it’ll be a bit crazy to be carrying a portable HD when in fact the reason for the small size is to carry less weight.

    Hi guys, any word/update on the price?

    I think Neo’s the best competitor for the 900, might as well be this model because of the price. people bit the 701 because of its price, but with more than 30k for a netbook less functional than a laptop, perhaps you should consider buying a laptop. its more practical, without regarding the weight and size.
