They look awesome, I have been looking at getting one to work on my programming while on the road. Good thing is TSA will probably only think its a phone and i wont have to take it out of the bag going through security.
Naa maybe not, they are much smarter than they appear..

I've had an Eeepc for about a month now and have to say that it's an absolutley brilliant little machine.I got it mainly because
A) i love gadgets
B) I was getting bored of carrying a big laptop around
C) I fancied trying something with linux
The Linux OS is really good, I had every intention of putting XP on the Asus but found as most people do, than the Linux system load really quick, is easy to use and comes with lots of included software like open office. I have a 3g usb modem which it recognised straight away so I now have a really neat mobile internet device.
of course in terms of using in the sim i think the main thing i though of was to have it as a kind of electronic flight bag- it has wifi so i can download and display pdfs of airport charts and approach plates etc and the small form factor means there is space for it in the cockpit..
anyway, i'd really recommend the asus eeepc and not forgetting the new acer aspire one which comes out next month and is a similar spec and price..

these subnotebooks will be this years summer hit. Many brands launching one:
asus eeepc 7xx and 9xx
Acer Aspire One
HP Mini Note
Dell E line
and many others.
I would advice anyone interested in one of those amazing gadgets to wait till summer as many more are about to be launched and with specs even better.
