Laptops tend to be big and heavy and really not that portable. Lucky for us, Asus introduced the EEE pc subnotebook to the market.
When I first saw it, my jaw dropped in envy! It's very small and very lightweight weighing at less than a kilogram. The default Operating System it has is Linux-based. This might turn off some people but the customized Xandros OS seemed to be user friendly. But for those who want to have Windows XP installed, the EEE is XP compatible.
The EEE only has currently 4GB of flash disk memory but users can opt to add 4GB SDHC card to increase the disk capacity.
The screen of the EEE is also small and only have a resolution of 800 * 480 pixels, making text on the screen hard to read. Nevertheless, the selling factor really of the EEE is its ultraportability.
If you want a small yet functional subnotebook, I would recommend buying an EEE. I myself plans to buy one in the next pay day.
