I got a new toy today!

Man this little thing is cool. If you're looking for an ultra-portable laptop I don't think I can recommend anything else.

 

I grabbed the 4G Surf in black and upgraded it to 2 gigs of DDR2-667 and added a 16 GB SDHC card. Even with the default Xandros installation limited at 1 GB, it FLIES. The keyboard is tiny but you get used to it after about 5 minutes of using it.

 

I'll be throwing WinXP on it this weekend, by then I'll have pics and such too.

 

I don't think you can beat it for $480 shipped ($350 + upgrades + shipping).

Those things look sweet!

I was thinking about getting one myself.

 

 

I think you should have waited a bit though, they are coming out with larger screened models fairly soon...

 

Also if you want more information about your EeePC, visit eeeuser.com.

They have a plethora of information from general details to linux distos made for the Eee to new model information.

 

Check em' out! ;)

 

Heres a neat one:

if you're like MC Hammer, you can fit it in your pocket!

 

I'd love an EeePC... all I'd want a laptop for is to write up some notes, maybe a bit of a paper, emails, internet... I dunno maybe a graph or something... no games or movies (I use a PSP for them), no music (I have a Cowon DAP)... oh I guess if you could use VoIP on it that would be pretty damn awesome, so I'd use that too :)

 

Google maps...

 

The EeePC looks most awesome when used with Asus WiMax (massively wide-area ultra high-speed wireless, the next step in mobile internet)

:lol:

 

 

These things look awesome though, they have tiny screens but they are quite versdatile in their usage.

A lot of people are modding them and playing around with the hardware quite a bit too...

Okay, nLite is officially the coolest program ever. Trimmed ~400 megs of junk out of my XP installer and it's now installing completely without me (and setting up my user account as well as a couple programs).

 

I've already got eeeClk downloaded to the flash drive with the configs I'm going to use. 500 MHz for battery saver and 1 GHz for performance mode (assuming it is stable at that speed).

Awesome dude! ;)

Nlite is pretty damn cool, keep us posted on the OCing too!

Got it up and running 100%. 450 MHz works great using eeeclk to downclock (I know, blasphemy!) and works great to crank it up past 1 GHz as well. I have it running Prime now at 122 MHz * 9 = 1098 MHz to see how it holds up. Temps are kept in check with the fan running 100% at around 60 C. So far so good 2.5 hours in. :D
