    I only think that touchscreens really make sense in the context of tablets, so definitely not for me.

    I have a convertible tablet/laptop, and i must say it makes a LOT of sense to use the touchscreen in laptop mode. This only applies to small laptops (mine's a 12") and netbooks though.

    I like the addition, though this will (again) make the eee more expensive. I'd like to see Asus develop BOTH ways (low end and high end) instead of just high end.

    errrrrrr. Didn't you read?

    "The news gets better for Eee PC fans, too: according to DigiTimes the company is also planning some new top-end models using Intel's dual-core Atom chips, and a new entry-level system that keeps things closer to the Eee's original design spec of an ultra-low-cost PC with an MSRP of just $300.

    Now to see if they get a better chipset for these, the 22W TDP 945 just doesn't cut it anymore. The "GSE" version is supposed to have a lower TDP and heat but haven't seen any info about it.

    There was always going to be a dual core atom machine since the ataom came out, they just didn't want to hurt sales of the old models.
