>At the Scale conference we has a Sony Picturebook running. It is a 600Mhz/128MB machine and it is nearly identical in size with the eee. On the picturebook the 1024x480 wide screen, builtin camera, sound, and even jog wheel all work with DSL and performance is great.
As I own both of them, a Sony Vaio C1VE (192 MB) and an Asus Eee PC, I can´t confirm this
The Picturebox runs o.k. after some tweaking with X11 or Xorg on DSL but it is far away from the plug and play system on the Eee PC. Networking and printing on the Eee is great. Performance is superior to the C1 even with full desktop mode and KDE. For a very short time I had Xubuntu on my Picturebook and it was a pain in the a...
But comparison is not really fair because the Sony is a rather old construction with a weak cpu
Vaio C1VN, Libretto 100CT, Portege 3020CT (all of them with DSL 3.x), Eee PC with Xandros Linux, a lot of Handheld PCs and other Mac and PC stuff!
