Hey JKK,
I was looking at the specs - and $499 AUS doesn't even get you WIFI ($29AUS option) or a built-in webcam ($35AUS option)...so I'll stick to my Asus EEE PC thanks.

Cheers,

Why don't they build one with a bigger screen! Same for EEE - I would have one in a flash if they had 1024x768 res and larger screen!
