Google announced today that they have opened up Google Docs to allow you to store any file in the cloud. You get 1GB free storage for files you don't convert into one of the Google Docs formats.
If you need more space, you can buy additional storage from Google for $0.25 per GB per year.

This new feature of Google Docs comes in preparation for the Google Chrome OS. The first anticipated Chrome OS devices will not have much storage and data is supposed to live in the cloud.

Asus is already bundling web storage with their Asus Eee Netbooks. With the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005HA-PU17 you get a whopping 500GB fileshare free for 1 year.
