Best value laptop in it's weight class

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Portability and Price

Cons:Screen could be larger

The Bottom Line: If you are using the eee as your only computer, buy the 19 inch or larger lcd monitor and the external keyboard and mouse for home use.


The 2 lb eee has been one of the best tech purchases I have ever made. I purchased this in Dec 2007 for only 399 bucks. Laptops in the comparable weight group cost as much as 6 times more. I work in IT and have been lugging around my 6 lb thinkpad to various job sites. Since I have to carry around spare drives, testing equipment etc, the eee has been a godsend. My model came with a 4 gig ssd and 512 ram which I have upgraded to 2 gig ram. I don't have any problem with the included Xandros Linux operating system, but I needed specific windows software for my job, so I installed xp. The eee comes with a xp driver disk and detailed instructions for installing xp in the user guide. However, you do need an external usb dvd drive for the xp install.

When buying the eee be sure to check with the vendor on whether the ram can be upgraded. Some models come with soldered ram, which can not upgraded. Also check the size of the ssd drive, you will need a minimum 4 gig ssd to install xp. The eee is available with 2, 4 and 8 gig ssd.

If you have modest storage needs, the eee has a sd card slot, where you can add up to a 16 gig sd card. If you need more storage buy an external usb portable hard drive, these are available up to 250 gigs.

The eee has a vga port, and 3 usb ports. I use one of the usb ports for my Logitech wireless vx nano mouse. The mouse usb wireless receiver is only a 1/4 inch in size so I leave it in place all the time on the eee. At home I plug in the eee to my 19 inch lcd monitor and plug in my external usb keyboard into one usb port and my passport 250 gig portable drive into the last usb port. With 2 gigs of ram, this makes a formidable photoshop workstation. The eee outputs 1600 x 1200 to the external monitor.

The eee also has a built in VGA camera and microphone and speakers, which are Skype compatible. There is also an external microphone input, and external headphone jack. There is wireless-G and a 100 base ethernet port.

My primary criticism of the eee, is that the 7 inch led screen, should be somewhat bigger. There appears to be room for about a 9 inch screen where the 7 inch screen is now. I'm sure future versions of the eee will be coming with larger screens.

For the advice on the most suitable ram and sd cards for the eee refer to http://forum.eeeuser.com. The forum also has advice on the best hacks and mods, including installation of Vista to the eee.
