This is really a nice little computer. I don't do a lot of heavy computing on it, but for web-surfing and word processing it's actually very nice. The keyboard is very accommodating once you get used to it, although the right 'shift' key is placed in a bad spot (next to the arrow keys).

Unlike what some others have said, I think it actually runs better with XP than with Linux. Xandros is, in my opinion, horrible. I also tried it with Ubuntu, which is fine, but if you want too install anything or play some simple Windows-based games, it can be a real pain.

If you do install Windows, though, you need to make sure it's on the smaller of the two SSDs. the larger one is the slave drive, so if your OS has to go through the larger one, it will freeze up. I accidentally installed XP on the larger drive at first (made sense to me at the time) and it was horrible. I re-installed it on the smaller drive and it runs smoother than on my desktop and I can play a few simple games when I'm wasting time without a problem.

Anyway, I think that for most of what people do on a computer the Asus Eee PC 1000 is a very nice little machine. If you want to do heavy computing, get something else. Otherwise, get one of these.

Terrible
Customer support is really, really bad. In fact, you can't speak with a live person. Turbo Tax claims to have a process where you can put in your telephone number and a live person will call you back in 15 minutes - DON'T BELIEVE THIS. There is a serious problem with this system - it doesn't work. You'll receive a phone call (a recorded message) that says "several attempts were made to contact you" and then they hang up.

I have one comment for Turbo Tax "Got People?" If not, your competition is going to leave you in the dust!

This is a nice little machine. It's not super high quality, but for $400, it's a tremendous value. It's small size makes it perfect for coffee shops, using on the couch, and on planes. It has a built in camera. It's reasonably fast - our machine runs windows with no problems.

I wouldn't suggest the asus eee as a work horse computer, but it's a nice little gadget to have sitting around the house.

Nothing really special. Works like enchanted Word template. But it can still help you quite a lot if you're not familiar with writing businessplans
