    Forum Asus rolls out Eee PC in Japan, Windows XP standard

    via Engadget


    It's taken a while, but it looks like folks in Japan can now finally get their hands on Asus's diminutive and eminently-hackable Eee PC, although not exactly the same models we have 'round these parts. Dubbed the Eee PC 4G-X, the Japan-centric laptop is apparently identical to the regular 4G model, with the notable exception that it now comes pre-loaded with Windows XP Home Edition as standard instead of the usual Linux OS. That, of course, takes up a hefty chunk of the 4GB of internal storage, so Asus has thoughtfully 4GB SDHC card with the laptop as well.

    Look for it to be available in your choice of black or white for 50,000 (or about $468 [237]), with free access to NTT's WiFine hotspot network thrown in for good measure.

    Sad....

    Windows XP? Needs additional storage? No way... Lol...

    I wish this would have stayed more an enthusiast computer rather than the "I need Windows because Microsoft tells us that anything else is scary to use/unstable/insecure."

    I assume the Windows version will be forced upon the US and Europe next?
