Chris, St.Peter Port 36, Graduate, Love Linux!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight design, smooth, sleek finish, generally very well designed and built. Survives shock well!
Great learning/ educational system.
Bad points:
On such a small machine I'd expect e.g. 5 hour battery life. I wouldn't mind it being bulkier (e.g. block-shaped rather than wedge shaped) for a few hours' extra battery life.

Terry, Tredegar 63 year old electrician

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
system is very easy to use, although the O/S is linux the software preloaded is exceptionally good and the unit is an ideal lightweight portable system, can be configured to run windows XP if required but I found that the linux O/S installed is very friendly to use, found it easy to network with other computers even those running a different O/S. There is quite a good forum for the Asus EEE PC at "eeeuser.com", shows on this forum how to install windows XP to a sd card and hence run windows or linux as preferred.
Bad points:
keyboard rather small for touch typing, but no problem for children with small fingers or for adults who type with two fingers.
