I saw an Acer Aspire One for $250 on NewEgg on Thursday I think.

That's $70 less than what I bought mine for a few months ago...

Three cheers for the DebianEeePC wiki, http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC, who are doing a fine job of rolling out debian for full Eee hadware support. I run it on my 4G with 512M of RAM. It boots to single-digit RAM usage (and quickly!) and after a nicely populated package set I have more than 2G of free space.

Currently have the EEE701. I wish I would have waited until the 9 inch screen was released, but oh well. I like it alot.

In general yes. But usually they are extremely smaller than any normal laptop and are much less powerful. The EEE 2G has a 500Mhz processor and the EEE 4G's have a 650Mhz processor.

They said they are aiming at the price level of 500 and the air is not worth the price tag.
