I do not have a laptop. I avoided buying one for the last few years because I had a work-provisioned one, but I had been glancing at those tiny EEE PCs.

I like the idea of ultraportable "netbooks" because of the solid state storage, the small size, and the rabid developer/user community. is dumping some of the last-gen 16MB Eee 900 refurb units for under $200 shipped so I pulled the trigger on it. Comes w/XP but I plan on putting the tiny/superfast Puppy Linux on it. Since Puppy (or "puppeee", as the Eee variant is called) is entirely RAM-resident I picked up the max 2GB ram for $20.

Will keep you posted.
