great idea !

for all those saying "I could bit torrent it" try looking for somthing that isnt porn, and isnt a hollywood blockbuster .

I can names at least 10 films id buy with this . I can also imagine giving films like this as presents, especially if the film has sentimental value rather than another crappy hollywood rom com.

This MAY also allow smaller indepentant filmmakers a shot at a wider audience

Second-gen Eee PC a CES no-show


Can the eee pc afford to cost more ?

I bought one of these, and love it, My missus loves it , my kids love it, even my co workers (several M$ fanboys included) love it as well. . But if it was bigger, cost 300 quid and had Xp on it , would anyone be interested ? probably not as there are loads of 350 quid full size laptops in PC world right now.

What asus should do is look at what the comunity is doing (adding bluetooth etc) and explore this. Ignore your customers at your peril !
