Asus Eee

My laptop is on the fritz. Five years of service and it doesn't want to start up sometimes and blue screens once week. Usually it just needs a timeout. Anyway, since I just will be using it for word processing and email, I am thinking of replacing my 6 pound monstrosity with an Eee PC, weighing in at just under 2 pounds. The beauty of this one is that it's all flash drive, fits in your palm and is going to cost around $250... if it ever comes out!!! It was supposed to be on sale last month, but everything seems to be hush hush. Anyway, I am on the lookout for it. I'll probably want a test drive to see if my gigantic fingers are too clumsy for the thing... What does Eee stand for?

Thanks Mark!

Best Buy or NewEgg... Which do you like better?

I would go for Newegg (I think you avoid WA sales tax), however I might see if I could use a 100 dollar coupon at Bestbuy. In August I purchased a computer with Jamie and if you signed up for Clearwire internet you could save 100 dollars on a computer purchase (instant rebate). The guy told me I could just cancel Clearwire the next day and still save 100 bucks on the computer. I don't know if the deal is still good. I found out about it through a Clearwire rep at Bestbuy.
