The three-star review shouldn't detract from this unit's appeal -- it's a well-made and reasonably-priced unit and does exactly what the vendor claims it will do. This is a rare enough thing these days. But potential buyers need to be aware of the limitations as well of the benefits of this device in order to make a good buying decision.

1. Keyboard. The keyboard is tiny and probably impossible for adults with normal-sized hands to touch-type on. This means that the eeePC is impractical as a portable writing machine. You can use it to jot down notes and such, but you'll be driven bonkers in fairly short order by the cramped layout and small keys. (I hasten to add that Asus was constrained by the size of the device, and did as good a job as could be expected given the form factor).

2. Screen. The screen is small (7 inches) but crisp and very legible. The 800x480 display is good enough for media (this unit makes a great PMP), but less good for writing or taking notes. The LED backlighting is sufficient for all but bright sunlight, and easier on the battery. Asus chose to place the unit's speakers on either side of the screen; I think they would have been better-advised to implement a larger screen instead.

3. Touchpad. The touchpad is small, but works well. But like the keyboard, you'll find it a trial if you have big hands. I recommend carrying an external USB mouse if you plan to do a lot of interacting with the device.

4. Connectivity. The eeePC has a splendid array of connection options: a 10/100 ethernet port, 3 USB2 ports, an SD card slot, and jacks for headphones and a microphone. The WiFi link worked just fine with my WPA-encrypted access point (WEP also works).

5. Software.

I bought this after seeing the black version available. It is great that Asus did not bump up the premium price for the black (Apple I hope you are listening). I am very happy with this purchase. I avoided the pearl white because I was afraid of getting it scuffed up being white and all.

This is a very user friendly laptop (Targeted after all for your children and older adults). I was never a huge Linux fan but the version that they installed here is at par with xp, even surpasses it because of the tabbed interface that is similar to Firefox. You do not even need to read the manual or be an expert on Linux to figure the thing out. It is a great starter laptop, and at the same time a great secondary laptop for the road warrior or student.

The EEE PC features are ultra mobile, sleek, and loaded with useful programs. I was going to switch the OS to XP but after playing around with the Linux OS, I was impressed with the features it has. I bought this mainly as a portable internet device and for a bit of word processing. I also note that the unit is very light, about 2 lbs. 3 oz and the boot time is exceedingly fast since it has a solid state drive. I actually rated this 4 1/2 stars. The gripes I have are expected, the keyboard is cramped and takes a bit of getting used to and you have to have an external dvd/cd drive to update to xp. The monitor though at a lower 800 x 600 resolution, is surprisingly bright and crisp. So far the storage is at 4 gig, so you have about 1.5 gig left over. This can be solved by adding a high capacity SD card, right now I believe they have up to 16 gig capacity for sale (I installed 4 gig). Love the fact that wireless G is built in. I haven't used the webcam yet but so far I am very impressed with the total package.

I was a bit apprehensive about the OS, since I have never had a linux machine, but it is super easy to use and very intuitive. Whew.

It took me a while to get used to the keyboard, but I have adapted quickly. I wouldn't use such a small keyboard for work, but for casual web surfing, reading docs, and editing/reviewing docs (my main uses of the machine) it is fine.

I downloaded several free ebooks and am using my Eee as a reader during my commute on the train every day. I had considered buying a dedicated reader, but decided on this instead so I could have a web surfing device in my purse, too.

I've had a laptop for years, and never take it anywhere. For work I insisted that I not have to haul a laptop back and forth every day, because they are such a pain, but this one is so small and light that I take it just about everywhere.

Last night I was waiting for someone, in my car, in a shopping center parking lot, and I took out the Eee and the wireless found several available signals at nearby coffee shops. The closest was about 100 ft away. Pretty good.

The wireless works great and connects fast. I love the fast boot time. I'm not thrilled with the touchpad, but then I've never seen one that I like, so take that for what it's worth.

Amazon told me that it would arrive after Xmas, but it arrived on Dec 4. (I ordered it on Nov 28.)

In short, I love this thing, because I can download forums, xwords, or articles to read on the train, and I don't have to carry around a big ole heavy laptop. Worth every penny.
