    Not that bad a price

    Allowing for the SSD & Memory upgrade, cost of C/F . This isn't a bad price for the time it must of taken to make.

    Now showing at £339 + P&P

    Allegedly, this is being supplied with OEMs of Windows XP SP2 and Office 2003. Given that the former is probably worth about £47 (looking at current pricing) ex VAT and the latter (even assuming the most basic version) about £100 plus, is anyone else looking at this and thinking (taking into account the base cost of the Eee and then the cost of the upgrades) "HOW hooky is that...?"

    All it neds [sic] now is..

    A huge and totally unnecessary spolier and a large bass speaker and every 17 year boy in the land will want one.

    Coming next: the Burberry Eee.

    Looks to me like someone's been to Halfords/Ripspeed and got some 'carbon fibre effect' stick-on tat-film.

    Stick-on carbon fibre?

    Looks awfully like somebody's taken an ordinary eee and added some tacky carbon fibre effect stick-on vinyl.

    Re: Pricey, but ...

    Definitely a looker - given that carbon-fibre sheeting is fairly expensive stuff, I don't think that the £400 price tag is that excessive.

    Also, considering that carbon-fibre can be a real bugger of a material to work with (tried making some carbon-fibre mudguards for one of my bikes a few years back - picking carbon splinters out of your fingers gets old fairly quickly) it's a fair price - kudos to the guy who did it.

    It has Windows on it

    That'll surely limit it's price and usefulness. Windows doesn't like small screens (480 high).
