$34 for a 10 watt solar panel, powerful enough to charge a laptop battery in a reasonably short period of time.
Less than $140, very low power usage, netbook computer. Capable of word processing, basic picture editing, internet use...
I haven't tried the solar panel, but I have used an EEEPC. The screen's small, the hard drive's small, and if you must have a CD drive, or need specific programs that might not run well on the EEEPC, it's not for you. If you are willing to deal with the limitations or what you really want is an ultra portable computer that has bare bones internet and word processing capability, then the EEEPC is appropriate for you.
