Well.. I got it.. now my table looks like a real mess!
But obviously I'm not bringing the eeePC to work, I plan to let my parents use it to get on the net and communicate with their friends. The included Xanadros Linux OS might be strange and intimidating to an experience Windows user, but for someone who hasn't touched a PC before it feels almost close to an appliance like interface.
Performance is acceptable for the price I paid for it, RM1299. It's cheaper than most smartphones! I'm spending some time with it to have a proper feel for it's Linux platform. But after using it for half a day I'm really thankful for the things we take for granted in Windows. I'll elaborate more on this after I collect my thoughts.
