The new version of the Eee supports multi-touch on its trackpad. The technology that has been around for years has finally made it to a PC.


Better still, the mouse trackpad supports multi-touch gesture inputs -- even in Windows XP. A pinching motion lets you zoom in on images, stretching lets you zoom out, and a two-finger vertical stroking motion allows you to scroll up and down through documents. MacBook Air and iPod touch users have enjoyed this feature for some time, but it's the first we've ever seen it implemented on a Windows laptop.

The 900 still comes with Linux, but XP is an option with a crappier machine.
