I love new gadgets and gizmos even though I'm not very tech knowledgable. I just found the coolest little laptop I've ever seen and immediately thought about how convenient it would be for traveling. It's 7" and just 2 lbs. but seems to do everything a full size one will. Best of all its cheap. This thing is called Asus Eee PC. They make a 2GB and a 4GB model. Do a search and check this thing out, I gotta have one.
Well I went to do as you advised and got onto the " eee " website. Websites like this really annoy me as when I go to use the green back button it won't let me escape from the site.The only way out is to click on the red cross but that means I lost my original google page.
Why these companies set up their sites so you can't just reverse out, I just don't know but its not a good way to attract a new possible customer....or maybe its just my computer. Is it the same for anyone else ?
Thanks Dave, I guess I should have done that but I was so blooming annoyed with the site (trying to reverse out ) and only having limited computer experience, I didn't think of that as a solution.
But did you find it ok to use the green back arrow ?
Neil, looks very good at a really great price but my main concern would be the low level resolution screen which according to the review I looked at means as it has an 800 pixel width & many websites default to 1024 pixels wide, the whole website wouldn't fit onto the screen. But it does seem to be very good value.
Thanks Jack, I hadn't seen the resolution issue. I shop at one of the online discounters and they have a video of the little thing in action. It caught my interest and I didn't look too carefully at the specs. Actually I don't need another laptop, I have two right now. I just thought it looked like a great gadget at a great price. I may have to reconsider now.
About 10 years ago I owned a Toshiba Libretto, which fit into my purse and weighed under 2 pounds. Had a 3.2G hard drive, and was perfect for traveling when I just needed it for email, word processing and web access.
It lasted 5 years, when the screen blacked out, and it was not economically feasible to fix it. I loved it while it lasted.
We bought an HP IPAQ thinking it would do the trick but it is a pain to use for mail.
I have a Toshiba Notebook but by the time you get all the cables etc in the case you are weighted down
The EEE PC looks like a good thing
Anyone get it yet??

I would need one that has a good enough video card to support games—that would probably cost more than I could afford. Today I heard that iphone is coming out with a new/better model. Maybe that would be an alternative...
