Default ASUS Eee 8G PC 8GB SSD Notebook

ASUS has created a huge wave in the sub-notebook portable Internet device markets with their Eee PC. Sub-notebooks are normally wonderfully exotic looking hardware for delightfully high prices. Well, exotic until one looks at the specs. The MacBook air is a great example - it looks like a killer machine until one looks at the combination of the lackluster specs and a price that makes even the most enthusiastic Mac fan blush. As for portable Internet devices, the Nokia N series is the first that comes to mind. Granted, they are really fantastic machines with excellent screens and software, but I am a bit old school I suppose. I still want a real keyboard. The Nokia N810 is close, but like my HTC TyTN, the keyboard is good for casual data entry and not suitable for long sessions of messaging, IRC or typing out documents or spreadsheets. The Nokia and other portable devices tend to also be pretty light on specifications, unless one is willing to pay the obscene price that OQO wants for their sub-sub-notebook.

Yup. "He" trawls the affiliate sites looking for new reviews and "he" will post them here as new threads. So, make sure you check on the Reviews & Articles from the Web a few times a day since there will always be new content. As long as he behaves.....

My System Specs


Since I will be away from home for 3 weeks now at a time, because of the new company I work for. So I was wondering if it was worth buying one of these or a full size laptop.
You would think they would put in a little faster cpu, then a 800 or 900mhz.

I need to make sure I get my fix of Hardware Canucks while I am gone..
Plus the BIG thing is to be able to email my family.

I do not know if I put this in the wright thread or not, if not sorry.
