I started Eee Site last year shortly after purchasing an Eee PC, which is an awesome little computer. I’ve been using portable devices for a long time now, and I’ve been through my share of mini computing devices that weren’t quite computers, but weren’t exactly PDAs either. The Eee PC was the first computer I’ve found that truly hits the sweet spot of price, size, and performance. But it won’t be the last.
A ton of other miniaturized computers are starting to hit the market. And I’ve been covering them at Eee Site:
- Acer plans to launch a low-cost mini notebook
- MSI shows off its Eee PC competitor at CeBIT
- The Noahpad might just be the craziest PC ever
- Everex Cloudbook will compete in the sub-$400 notebook market
- HP 2133 Mini-Note preorder page goes live
- Intel announces Classmate 2/Netbook/CTL 2Go PC
- Everex announces the Cloudbook Max
- Gecko: Upcoming ultraportable to run Linpus Lite
- TangoX: Think Cloudbook, but with a touchscreen
But the more I wrote about these other computers, the guiltier I felt about the name Eee Site. I love my Eee PC, but it’s certainly not the only subnotebook out there. It’s not the only one worth covering, and it’s not the only one worth buying. So I needed to come up with a new name for the site. Grant Robertson helped me come up with the awesome new name, Liliputing.
I’m going to keep Eee Site alive because there are a ton of (what I think are) useful articles on the site. But I’ve combined the Eee Site and Liliputing search boxes, so you should be able to find all of those articles by searching from either site. And all of my new posts will be on Liliputing.
I’ve also combined the RSS feeds, so if you’d subscribed to Eee Site, you may now find yourself subscribed to Liliputing. Please note that this is temporary. Please update to the new feed as the old one will eventually be shut off.
Have a look around, kick the tires. Liliputing is still a work in progress, so if you have suggestions let me know!
Update: I forgot to mention. If you’re only interested in Eee-specific stories, or stories of any particular flavor, check out the nifty tag cloud in the sidebar. Just click on Eee PC or your tag of choice and you’ll get a page filled with articles tailored to your tastes.
