Why is The Linux version more expensive ?
The extra SSD capacity in the Linux version does not justify the price discrepancy.
It looks like Asus has done a backroom deal with Microsoft to screw us, the consumers.
You can keep your EEEPC Asus, I'll buy my cheap ultraportable from your competition.

Has anyone done this yet... and is it possible to do with the space that the screen takes up now?
