Got this primarily to use as a portable dev box, replaced my 14" Dell. Good bits: it's much smaller and lighter than it looks (cut a 14" Dell in two, and you get the idea of how small this thing is---it fits in my coat pocket). Bad bits: not much free flash memory, keyboard is a bit small-ish, and some keys are annoyingly placed (right shift and up arrow key get confused too often, as well as quote).

The laptop comes with `kid-friendly' user interface, but can be easily switched to `advanced mode'; which is essentially KDE. You get 1.4Gigs free of flash memory, and using apt-get, can install (among other things): gcc, jdk, vim, apache, php, mysql, audacious, firefox, etc. (ie: anything a linux user might want). RAM is a limitation---as far as I know, there's no swap partition, so if you have a bit too many things running, you'll get weird coredumps from time to time.

Doesn't support WPA2 out of the box, otherwise wireless (with WPA) works just fine. Webcam is pretty sharp and clear (on par with midrange quickcams), and microphone is pretty useful.

Processor is fast enough to play xvid video full screen (from flash drive---though it's not like you'll be storing too much of that on that small disk). I've read about folks playing Quake3 on it. The screen resolution for external (vga) output is pretty decent---used it with projector.

Recognizes external drives without problems. Automounts stuff, etc. For a linux box, I'm actually quite surprised that ``everything just works'' (unlike my desktop---that takes pain and struggle to get stuff working).

If you want an easy to carry, small and semi-rugged laptop for word-processing or coding---primarily when on the go (on subway, etc.) then this box is it.

I've seen a lot of negative reviews on other sites saying you can get a "real" laptop for not much more money. Well, I bought one of these as a present and after seeing it run in person this little computer IS a real laptop! The operation system is very intuitive and easy to use, it comes with a bunch of different applications, but more importantly it just works. The small screen and keyboard take some getting used to, but as long as you purchase the Eee knowing you'll having to adjust then you shouldn't have any problem. I was touch typing at a relatively good pace after playing around with the unit for just a few minutes. The small amount of flash storage isn't an issue either since even a 8gb SDHC card can be had for a reasonable price. Now that I've seen one in action I'm seriously considering replacing my PDA/IR Keyboard setup with one of these. Until you see it in person it's hard to believe just how powerful a device Asus put together here. Right now I'm one of the Eee PC's biggest supporters. If you want a very small form factor laptop, or just a device to blog/read e-books/write/watch video's/play music/surf the web/do just about anything else you can do with a full fledged computer, THIS IS FOR YOU!

I have been waiting for the eee pc since I saw a blurb about it in, of all places, Vogue. They were pushing it as a computer that fits in your clutch, and since I travel a lot, I was salivating.

I am writing on it now, and I am just thrilled with it. It does indeed fit into my purse (it's about the size of a small-ish notebook or journal) and my wifi connection worked right away when I opened it up. I've been using the battery for about 2 hours so far and it's still at 40% power, so that looks promising.

I'm new to linux, and the layout is a bit different for windows users (I think it's a little different for this computer, too). I tried to download a program and had no idea where it went - I felt like a complete dope floundering around opening folders and having no luck. So I guess I'll have to get used to that.

The keyboard is small, obviously, and I'm struggling with typing on it and making my fingers hit all the keys properly! I also tried to download rhapsody with no luck since it doesn't work with linux (boo hoo).

Here's what I love about it, in addition to the size and cuteness: It has three usb ports so I can plug in my portable hard drive. It is incredibly light. It boots up amazingly fast. The speakers are great, especially considering the size. It has a webcam built in. I guess you can put windows on it, so I might try that later. And did I mention how cute it is???

I'm sure a lot of people are going to say the same thing I am - this is a great computer to have when you travel or just as a secondary one to play around on. It probably should not take the place of your primary computer as it just doesn't have enough size for all the programs you'd want. But for playing around on email and skype, typing stuff on the go, etc., it just can't be beat.

I'm definitely very happy with it!

First a disclaimer: Although I did not buy my Asus 3ePC from Amazon, I would have had it been available during the US launch date. Maybe I would for a later model.

I've been tracking this device for many months prior, and I, like many people, was a bit distraught by the fact that Asus could not deliver on its $200 price tag. Nonetheless, I was still motivated to buy it due to the unit's size and the fact that it offered a preinstalled Linux OS (a rarity in the market); besides, the 4G is technically superior to the 2G model I tracked during the summer, so it likely would've retailed for at least $300 regardless.

I can understand why some people would scoff at the price compared to the meager specs -- compared to the latest wave of Vista machines, 900mhz with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of space seems like a relic from 2001. Indeed, for a comparable price, you can get a used laptop with maybe twice the specs, an optical drive, and a real hard drive.

However, it is very easy to overlook that Portability DOES sell at a premium. Case in point: when I purchased my unit, it was surrounded by Vista laptops, dwarfed in size even by the "portable" 10 and 12 inch models. It also occurred to me that the $399 price tag seemed weak,... almost adorable,... compared to the $1200, $1500, and $2000 "portables", and even just regular laptops retailing for the now ubiquitous $700 and $800 dollar range. Add to that the fact that the Asus is truly the first of its kind (beating the OLPC and Classmate at least from a consumerists perspective), and $400 starts to look more and more like a bargain.
