Speaking of $300 OLPC killers, the SF Chronicle's reporting that the $299 Asus Eee PC 2G Surf has officially launched. It has half the storage space and RAM of the 4G models, plus it's soldered on, so noodling around's dicier. The Fresno school system's already handing out 1,000 of 'em loaded up with Windows and Microsoft programs (!) to students; they picked the Eees 'cause they're tiny and cheap. And, it's an actual OLPC snub.
