    UPDATE.

    I should have stock of the 2gb, in white only, on Tuesday.

    These things are hard to come by and will be for the forseeable future.

    I should get at least 20 units.

    I've just purchased one for £40 over the RRP from PurelyGadgets.co.uk - ordered it 5 days ago and still no sign of it. Sorry to go off topic slightly but if you're thinking of ordering one then don't get it from this company. £5 for a 5 day delivery on something theyre charging £40 over RRP for? Not good business in my opinion.

    I will give you impressions (and pictures if you want) when mine finally arrives. I'm going to put Windows XP on it and have ordered an 8gb sdhc class 6 card from memorybits.co.uk and a mini 4gb flash drive - hopefully that'll give me enough room eh.

    I don't understand your comment. It is bad business because they charged you £5 for delivery? The delivery charge is clearly stated.

    You didn't have to pay £40 over RRP, you chose to.

    Well ofcourse - no compaints about the price or the delivery charge as such - what I forgot to mention was they emailed me with a promised day for delivery (needed to know the day so I can be in to recieve) and twice have not delivered on the day they have said they would.

    EDIT - any idea of what trade price is for these? I've seen a few sites with the white 2gb fairly cheap: http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/Asus_Eee_PC_2GS_EEEPC2GS-W001/version.asp?refsource=awin

    The RRP 219.99 4gb shoud trade around £185 + VAT as an estimation.

    I'm looking at the details now and the 2gb Asus Eee PC 2GB White is £162 + VAT. Who wants some? Got to be worth a tenner on top for me :)

    Hardly a benchmark. PC World charge too much for all their products. Both on eBay and other websites the 2gb is being sold for £190 or less.

    I would advise using nLite to make an XP install disk (to take out all of the un-needed features). Once you boot into the OS make sure and disable the page file on the unit (by default the page file will be around 1.5GB and you won't have any storage). I stock some of these for my medical clients and they love them. The only other thing I would advise is purchasing a second SSD drive and throwing it on the connector to give you some extra space. I wasn't thrilled with the linux kernel it was running when I got it, was a bit too restrictive.
