New gadget in the house! I bought an ASUS ~$400 Eee PC. I was fighting the urge to buy it for two weeks now and finally it won. I could have waited for the 8GB model or the black model, but in a moment of weakness, I succumbed.
I've go the wireless set up for home and started to try out the various features. The mike is reasonable, the video is pretty crappy, the speakers are weak but sufficient, the keyboard is small and easy to hit too many keys (my typing sucks anyway), and the 7 inch display (800x480) is very small but it is bright enough for indoors (haven't tried it in daylight yet).
We'll see how it goes, but so far I like it despite its shortcomings.
