My home laptop is on its way out. Well, I'm not going to spend money on it anyhow: power supply is 5 years old, and is looking a bit worn (wires getting thin, about time for it break). Hinges are on their way out (stripped screws, and you can feel the play too). Keyboard is gone -- literally. [I have to type with the on-screen keyboard.] On top of that, it runs XP like absolute crap. I could do a Linux install I guess; but I think the computer has seen better days.
I just started seeing these Asus computers though. The prices seem decent, capabilities ok. I pretty much just surf the web at home anyhow. I did use Linux, briefly, in college, so that's not a drawback.
Any thoughts here about these? I'm not likely to buy too soon. I did read one review on the really small/cheap "Surf" edition, which I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get (unless if someone gave it to me). Afterall, here at work, I have dual 17" monitors, I think a 7" screen might be a bit too much of a change.
