"The system is available today, and starts at $369."
their press release had that info above and was released on 5/18 so you'd think the links should be working 5 days later.
this one has more options that can be added (e.g., even a touchscreen option).
i also really like having the option to have just a 16GB solid state drive. all data can be kept on a Kingston Elite Pro 4 GB 133x CompactFlash Memory Card CF/4GB-S2 for $15 -- just buy a few and have data backed up easily, etc. (or substitute any CF card or SD or even a 3rd memory card option -- probably whatever your digital camera uses would be fine).
Actually, the little one is really liking HP's purse size one, too. I really like these things - They're handy, fun, useful, easy to pack around.
i borrowed an ASUS EePC (or whatever) at 8" or 9" and the keyboard was great for my 7 year old, but i couldn't type more than a word without an error because of the smaller keyboard. so i am hoping the 10.x" is adequate for typing. if not, i suspect that my son will end up using the thing more than me. ;~)
HP has a few new offerings in the 10" category . . . and the linux version is cheaper. it comes with HP Mi, which is built on an Ubuntu base but is customized for a smaller netbook screen. so far, the reviews seem to like it.
