I got my Asus Eee PC back in September 2010 and am really liking it so far. I received it as a gift for my birthday. I was having problems with my desktop and do not have a laptop so geting this netbook was fabulous news for me. At first I was a little put off by the size of the screen and then when I found out there was no CD/DVD drive. I soon came to be okay with it. I have not really gotten back on my desktop since I have had this. I remote connect to my desktop through my netbook and am able to do pretty much anything I need to do from it. The main two things I do not like about it though is that when you fullscreen for videos or games (like on Facebook) it really laggs and is extremely choppy and not smooth. I think I am able to do more things connected remotely since my desktop (Windows XP) can multi task easier, I use it to do more things at once. I still cannot do the games and videos though from the netbook. If I need to access a disk, I pop it in my desktop, connect remotely then access the disk while on the Netbook. As well as being able to access my external hard drive. ANything I can do on my desktop pretty much, I can do remotely from my Netbook. If and when I get some more money I will be investing in a laptop but still use my Netbook for taking it with me places and just use the laptop for portable around-the-house movement. Overall though - I have to say this Asus Eee PC is a great investment for basic internet and email. If you are wanting to multi task, you can connect remotely, it is great for that. Also for being extremely portable, light wieght.
