The new Eee PC 900 offers you more options for your mobile computing needs. Incorporating a shockproof design and weighing 2.18 pounds, you will find it "Easy to learn, work and play" - making it your best outdoor companion anywhere, anytime. The large 8.9" screen size allows for more screen space - making it more comfortable on the eyes reading and editing documents when viewing a single A4 page without the need to scroll left or right. On the top of this screen is the 1.3 Megapixel Webcamera that works synchronously with the 802.11b/g wireless to provide web conferencing anywhere, anytime for easier web communications and increased work efficiency. Another great feature is the built-in 16GB Solid State Disk (SSD) which offers 15 seconds boot times that makes for a quiet, energy saving, shock proof design, which is ideal for reporters, wildlife photographers and other like-minded outdoor enthusiasts. Preinstalled on the Eee PC is the Linux operating system, and Open Office for numerous office applications. Lastly the special FingerGlide makes operating the Eee PC easy and convenient through simple finger movements on the touch pad that allows for scrolling horizontally and vertically through documents by swiping two fingers up or down across the surface of the trackpad, or zoom in or zoom out of pictures by making pinching or stretching movement with your fingers. With all of these features the Asus Eee PC makes for a fantastic purchase as a well-equipped second PC or a Web access tool so beat the crowds, and get yours today before they sell out!

Summary: Excited to get it!
Comment: I haven't received mine yet. It comes to me next week as I expect and that is fine for me. My delivery time is greater because of where I live.

One reviewer mentioned that if you need IE to see some websites you are out of luck. Well, not really because you can get Crossover Office from Code Weavers and it will allow you to run Office and IE on Linux w/o a Windows license. I have it and it works great on my desktop systems. I see no reason why it wouldn't work on the Eee 900 with Linux.

Can't wait to get mine. I do financial planning and am creating a website and move about a lot doing consulting and taking notes. This will be perfect. I went to a local store before buying so I know what I am getting. I have a big MacBook Pro as my main work horse. It is fantastic but heavy to bring to my client meetings when I don't have to do major work. The Eee 900 will be a great benefit.

I will post a review when I get mine next week.

Summary: Small yet powerful
Comment: This laptop is one of the best new technologies out in the market right now. With the display of about 8.9'' and approximately about 3.0 pounds, it is perfect for a student to carry along to class to take notes or can be used for searching the net with wireless capabilities. Even though, understandably it comes without DVD/CD-rom drive, it featured USB capable ports for memories storing devices. With enough power to run Microsoft windows XP, it is perfect for office works and convenient for group meetings. With 6 cell batteries, it could lasts up to 7 hours for extended working times and entertainments. It has options including 1.3 mp webcam that would be ideal for long distance conversation and built in microphone for that same purpose. I strongly recommend this as a first laptop/PC and since it is powerful enough to handles heavy works, it can also be use as tools for students and office works. This is the new technology and the new generation of personal computer.

Summary: Not Great
Comment: This computer would not connect to the internet for very long. It also arrived with some of the keys popped up and we were told we had to contact the company to fix this. It made it look very cheap. This item was returned.

Summary: Nice Little Machine
Comment: This is a very nice little machine. It comes with Linux, so keep that in mind if you're super dependent on Windows or Mac. It runs quick and is excellent if you're just looking to do some word processing, a little web surfing, listening to tunes, you know, any low-impact computing activities.

The only gripes are the keyboard and the battery life.

First the keyboard definitely is small, and you will probably have difficulty typing if you have large hands. Also, the keyboard is somewhat unresponsive sometimes, especially the spacebar. Deliberate keystrokes are necessary to ensure that all characters and spaces are actually put onto the screen. Also, take a look at a picture of the keyboard to see if the tiny right shift key will bother you, especially with its proximity to the "up" arrow.

The battery life is pretty low. If you plan to take the leash off this thing and go tooling around on the internet wirelessly, you'll probably only get about 90 minutes off the battery. But you can greatly increase the battery life by turning off the wireless and dimming the screen a little bit to get a couple hours out of it.

It's a few hundred bucks for a fully functional little comp that can take care of what most of us use computers for: diddling around.

Summary: Perfection
Comment: This is the computer I've been looking for. Small, light, cool, SSD storage, and the price is right. I'll never go back to a large laptop or to Windows. Linux is my OS of choice, and the Eee is perfect for it.
