Excerpt: This past weekend a circular advertised a Vista-powered laptop equipped with a Celeron processor, 14.1-inch display, an 80GB hard drive, and a DVD drive for only $399. For the same price, the Asus Eee PC offers the same amount of RAM and Celeron processor but a smaller seven-inch display, a measly 4GB of storage space, and no DVD drive. And yet there's no way we would give up this two-pound wonder for a "regular" notebook.
Pros: Easy-to-use interface, Full Web 2.0 experience, Lightweight design, Useful education programs, Works well with external peripherals, Very good performance for the price
Cons: Webcam can't yet be used for video chats, Not easy to find and load new applications, No mobile broadband support
Summary: There's no two ways about it -- the Asus Eee PC 701 is a great laptop. It's affordable, sexy and highly portable. If you're looking for a cheap second PC that can fit into a small bag, then there are few better options
Pros: Great value, Three USB ports, Design
Cons: Cramped keyboard, Lack of storage space, No optical drive
