A caution for thozs considering the EEE, it appears to have a very
fragile screen, a woman at work bought one "for her son" (she's the
gekiest woman I know, she wanted the toy for herself, Zack was just the
justification ;^) and he broke the screen within a week by slamming it
shut, not an uncommon thing to do. When she went looking in eBay to find
a broken one to get the screen to fix, she found plenty on there, ALL
with broken screens, someone else I know was trolling ebay for one to fix
up, and found the same thing, so it's apparently something you have to
watch/be very careful of with the EEEs.
NB: The Everex Cloudbook an dthe 4-5 other varients of the same machine
do look a better deal to me, though it'd be nice if they moved ahead with
upgrading to a 9" screen, which they're talking about ( it'll fit into
the existing machine, just less suirround on the screen).
