    I’m waiting for the 8gb one :) The model that I was playing with was the 4gb one and with all the applications installed, it was about 1.3gb space left.

    I love green! But if the eee pc was completely green, I’d love it even more :)

    Jean as in Simply Jean? I didnt have the fortune of seeing her laptop :)

    But I noticed that when I bring a regular laptop out, I’d normally just check the email, I think that the EEE PC would be better since its more portable :)

    Cant wait to get my hands on one permanently! :D

  2. Hey, I have one of these. I found that long usage is a bit painful for the wrist and the screen a bit too small. However if I am traveling and need a computer for checking messages and some browsing,. eee pc is perfect.

    Thanks for the link to Global Voices!

    I dont think that the EEE PC is suitable for a complete replacement for laptops. Being small, it can be uncomfortable when used for a long time. But like you said, its perfect for checking mails and browsing.

    I like carrying it around as its small enough to fit in my bag and I can do my basic things in there which is what I normally do with a laptop anyways :D

    For $600, I think its a great companion :)

    Thanks for dropping in :)

    The Kohjinsha is another great UMPC. It even has a larger internal storage size than the EEE PC with about 150gigs. It uses MS operating system if one prefers that. The design is beautiful too.

    The downside to that is that it costs two times more the EEE PC. So if you’re on a budget, I think the EEE PC would be more suitable if its only for basic needs.

    I’m still figuring out how to install software into it. So far, I’ve enabled to set full desktop to it, but being familliar with windows mainly, its a little daunting.

    The screen is small.

    Its 7″ and the resolution is 800×480 which can be annoying with some website where you have to do additional scrolling. But the screen is bright and sharp enough to have a pleasant surfing experience :)

    Maybe you might want to head to Funan or Sim Lim Asus Store to have a hands on before getting one? I’m looking forward to the 8gb ones too :)

  4. Thanks a bunch for the video review. Been thinking of getting one just for on-the-go travelling (my 14 month Macbook Pro is dying a slow death from battery issues and it has become a glorified almost-desktop). It should be great for my basic needs. Kohjinsha’s machine would be another alternative but right now is beyond my budget.

    Only concern would be how small the screen it is since I’d want to loan it to my dad for Skype with a brother in Adelaide. Do let me know where I can get one of these babies, especially if the new 8GB ones come out. Cheers!
