The Eee PC includes the documents and the e-mails software, and a suite of other productivity software to help keep you on track. It'll ship with Open Office, Firefox and Skype, but you can install any number of other open-source applications.

Other interesting specifications of the ASUS Eee PC 701 4GB include, Ethernet, camera and three USB ports. Additional storage space can be added by inserting a Secure Digital (SD) card

It's pre-order, estimated instock date 7 Dec.
It's a bit flaky connecting to Microsoft networks wirelessly. Fine on a wired network. Open Office is not completely compatible with Microsoft Office. All the same a nice notebook but sold mine and I am now waiting for the 8G model with the rumoured Windows XP.

I believe if you are in Education you can get it for £199.
All the write ups have been positive considering price and what you get for it...as small as an A5 piece of paper.
Ideal for those out and about a lot or even kids, runs a form of linux so more secure than XP (contentious I know)
This is the price I have seen quoted in most places.
Read the spec- 7 Inch screen!
Gets a hot vote for bringing it to peoples attention.

Amazingly well-made and sturdy, nice clear screen, decent battery life, good wifi reception, easy to set up and very cute. 4GB doesn't sound much but it's fine - just keep your music and video files on an SDHC card or USB drive and the 1.4GB free space inside the machine is OK for documents, email, diary, etc. Don't bother with Windows unless you want to make a hobby out of getting it working - the Eee PC is great to just USE. Just wish it had Bluetooth..

imho Asus EEE is the perfect micro office for everyone.
it allows you to do whatever your want, eg. you can install windows, ubuntu or use default xandrOs.

you can also expand your store size using usb hd or sd cards or connect it to an external monitor ('ve just finished to test it on a Plasma 42" and it works very fine).

So if you need a small pc, buy it!

Yes it does, just above the top of the screen, almost hidden in the image below..

Another feature of this 4Gb/512Mb (SSD Drive space/system RAM) model is that the ram is also user upgradeable, unlike the earlier and cheaper 2Gb/256Mb model where the ram is soldered on.

It's not mentioned explicitly in the link above but it will most likely be DDR2 SODIMM. There were a few threads for cheap DDR2 SODIMM earlier this week here at HUKD, like just under £30 for 2Gb so even more of a bargain :thumbsup:

There's already an 8 page thread discussing this laptop on HUKD

Unfortunately this is not quite true as the memory is under a flap with a warranty sticker over it. Remove that and your 2 year warranty is void.

Yep and not all DDR2 will work

Does it have TV out ?

Those of you with a bar under the chain name of varsity near would probably benefit from picking up their "V card" which gives you 5% off on play.com, and it costs £2.
#24
Is there such a cable as VGA to RCA (composite or s-video) ?

As the next batch is not due out until 5-7 December I suspect you won't get it Monday.

mine came today, i am surpised how smal it is. i paid £216 all in and will be putting xp on at the weekend. it is tiny and would fit in most coat pockets. you aint going to fit it into your skin tight jeans but combats and baggys trousers it will fit.

i have also taken out the 512 ram and stuck a 2gb one in. its interesting as when wwe opened it up removing the warrenty sticker there was what looked like 2 spaces for ram when ifact there is only 1... i have also a 4gb sd card whcih i got a while ago which is going in and i will be testing my 3 mobile broadband on it later.

it is perfect for what i want it for and i think it looks sweet too.
