> why MP3?, isn't that the bad version of Ogg Vorbis?
Because everybody and their mom has MP3s. Everybody uses it, everybody supports it (say a mp3
cdrom in a car stereo), you can buy DRM-free songs in MP3 format, etc etc.
I like Ogg Vorbis more, but it's pointless to re-encode mp3 format into o.v. if you can help
> N800 or an EEE PC
You'll want a N800. EEE gets rather (suprisingly) hot and the battery life is way too limited
(2.5-3hr, goes faster then you think it does and it takes something like 5 hours for a full
recharge). I am typing this out on a EEE, btw.
Personally I think the Neo1973 (or whatever they are calling it nowadays) has a good chance at
being my first 'mp3 player'. (or more accurately Ogg/Flac/mp3 player)
