When the one with the 10" screen came out, I was in love. And thanks to one of Catch of the Day's great bargains, I managed to snag it at a very good price.
Behold, my new baby, the Asus EEE PC 1000HD.
It's so light; at less than 1.5kg, it's a huge difference from my brick of an Acer. Granted the keyboard is going to take a lot of getting used to, what with my sausage fingers. Typing out this post on it sure took a while. It doesn't have an optical drive, but really, who uses one these days?
The only gripe I have about it is that it seems to have a tough time connection to the wireless network in the house. It takes a long time to connect, and as it does, it's eating up the battery. Does anyone who has an EEE PC have the same problem too? I mean, it's supposed to be a netbook with good WIFI capabilities, but at the moment, I'm just not seeing it.
Other than that, I absolutely love it. It's going to be so nifty bringing this with me when I'm traveling (I know, I know, I hardly travel these days, but that's neither here nor there).
I would sleep with it if I can. I'm serious.
Tim's so not amused :p
