Eee PC as desirable as MacBook Air

Apple would like us to think the MacBook Air’s the most lusted after piece of kit on the planet. But it seems you lot have got different ideas.

Last week’s Tech Tickler threw up some surprising results with the super cheap, super cool Asus Eee PC 900 pushing Apple’s slimline effort in the desirable stakes.

While half of those surveyed fancied a piece of the MacBook Air, a massive 35 per cent want Asus’s tiny laptop. Considering it costs almost a grand less and is arguably as cool as the Mac, it’s hardly surprising.

Bringing up the rear is Lenovo’s Thinkpad X300, with a mere 15 per cent of your votes. It might be thin, but that clearly doesn’t mean everything.

We’re not at all shocked that the Eee PC is gaining ground. We’re massive fans here at Stuff Towers, as you can see in our video review.
