I have a black 4G Surf and love it. It is definitely an attention grabber when you pull it out (Michael Scott - "That's what she said"). I am an Office fan. But anyways I decided to install XP on it and added a 8gb SD card. I really bought it for surfing the web and working on some lab reports. My EEE really surprised me when it could play x264 videos flawlessly, Netflix instant, and N64 emulation. With the VGA out I take videos over to my friends house and use it as a media player on their big TV. It's size and weight are great for carrying around all day in your book bag. Like I said the EEE PC will surprise you and at $350 (for my model) it was the best purchase I have made. I don't know how many times I was away from my computer and I needed internet access to email a report or lookup information on wikipedia to answer problems.

The XP install is really easy to do if you got a way to hook up a CD drive. I will probably reinstall the default OS soon or Ubuntu or something. If you are debating about getting this I'd say go for it because you won't be disappointed.

Ubuntu is looking like a tempting choice since the Xandros OS it comes with, only detects 1 GB of RAM.

Any one try to get the terminal to work? I was going to do some light coding and scripting in Linux, and needed it.

Grr now the decision, now, or wait til the Gen 2's come out with Merom processors, and 8-9 inch screens.. or just get a basic model then when they are cheaper.

I think the screen is fine, but that's just me. I leave it at around 1/2 brightness and it's still perfectly readable to me. If you have bad eyes it might not be the greatest thing ever though.
