Default Opinions needed...

Just saw this on ces 08. Was thinking of using to take to class to take notes with very small and portable and seems really great for the price. I know the hard drive is tiny but thats what 8 gig sd cards are for.

Amazon.com: Asus Eee 4G-Galaxy 7" PC Mobile Internet Device (512 MB RAM, 4 GB Hard Drive, Webcam, Linux Preloaded) Pearl White: Electronics

I think it's a great little device for basic work (like you mentioned, taking notes) and internet. With it's limited hard drive capacity, you can also use USB flash drives, or external drives.

I'm thinking of getting one myself.

the Eee pc is a nice little computer, great for basic every day tasks just don't expect it to replace you real laptop anytime soon.
