    Eee 901 or MSI Wind

    What would you get, if you had the choice?

    What are your reasons?

    Is there an alternative that you would consider?

    I'm in two minds, and am waiting for the Atom chip to be readily available before making a purchase. All I know, is that I want a small, WiFi laptop, with a great battery life, that I can use to surf the interweb.

    What do you think?

    I'd wait until both came out, reasonable real-world battery times were posted and the faults of each had a chance to be discovered.

    If pre-ordering is a must then I'd go with the eee 901, as it's the third interation of a product and probably isn't going to be that much changed there's much less that could go wrong - although I wouldn't rely on it having more than two or three hours of battery life.

    That's good advice, and probably the right thing to do.

    Does anyone know of a site that directly compares these two machines?

    Here is ]Wikipedia's comparison

    The Wikipedia stats for the MSI Wind differ with the following
