after some investigation, i remembered that enuinc is into ASUS hardware. i called and they have an EEE on display! sweet! though its ironic that the ONE store i would visit in gateway is enuinc and I am at the urban grind right now. On my way home I'm going to stop in and try it.
it has a built-in webcam and will probably work well as a portable justin.tv broadcast platform. woot! (woot is the 2007 word of the year btw)
