My Asus Eee arrived from the US today. I had been wanting a small laptop PC to carry with me on trips. Last summer when I was in Oklahoma and Texas, I was in a couple of motels that had wireless Internet service and I had no PC. I have now solved that problem.
This is an ASUS Eee PC. It only has 4 Gig of storage memory, but I also purchased a 8 gig flash card, so I effectively have 12 gig.It uses a Linux operating system, so the amount of memory I have is fine for my purposes. The price through Amazon was $441.61 for the PC and flash memory.
The problem with most laptops is that they are large, heavy and probably require a briefcase to tote them around. This one weighs 2 pounds and is about the size of two of my paperbacks laying side by side.
I charged the battery and it was ready to go. I tested it both on my LAN as well as with wireless and it worked flawlessly. Now if I had just one one of those TACA tickets, I would be good to go.
