– 7″ screen (get out the reading glasses)
– keyboard is smaller than full size
– 802.11b/g WiFi
– Ethernet and modem connectivity
– webcam (300K pixel video camera)
– 512MB DDR2-400 with 4, 8 or 16GB flash drive
– Intel Celeron M CPU
– 2 lbs
– 3 hour battery life (5200mAh)

All this for a starting price of US$199.
