a look at small computers.

With the introduction of the MacBook Air, the Washingon Post takes a larger look at small computers.
Memo to Steve: While the MacBook Air may be the world's thinnest laptop (at least according to Apple), plenty of other models are smaller and weigh less. In fact, supersmall laptops such as the Asus Eee PC and the FlipStart are redefining what a portable PC is all about.

Small computers are currently a big deal: Asus says it sold 350,000 Eee PCs in just three months. And these marvels of miniaturization are undeniably cool. Their diminutive size necessitates some compromises, however for example, compared with using a traditional-size laptop, touch typing on one of these devices can be a challenge.
