ASUS Eee PC X101

 

The MeeGo OS-powered ASUS Eee PC X101 offers extreme portability and a fresh interface for $199, but the cramped keyboard and short battery life give us pause.

Good Starter

 

Slim & light with a decent battery. The scroll pad is not very sensitive & probably have to attatch a mouse, thus losing one of only two usb ports. Comes with windows 7 starter but easily upgraded to 7 ultimate. Screen is very low colour grade & my old...
