I finally got to see the eeePC this morning and man, is it cool! Here are some of the features:
- 7 inch display -small, but that is part of what I like about it
- Linux OS – I do not have a lot of experience with this, but the desktop and navigation are incredibly user friendly
- Comes loaded with Open Office and a link to Google Docs – ready for 21st century collaboration. No need to load lots of apps
- Built in web-cam and speakers for online collaboration
- Small HD – 4 GB (can get 8GB) – but not an issue if you have network storage or store all your docs online!
We are opening a new elementary school in August and this small laptop would be great for the students! And at $399 it is highly affordable. The one big complaint I see online is that some users do not like the small keyboard and display – but I am thinking this is a benefit for Elementary students!
