Eee PC

My Asus Eee PC should arrive today.

Yes, MY asus Eee PC. Originally I'd ordered it for Mom, as I'd grown impatient of waiting on a deal on a decent notebook from Dell. Of course, 3 days after I order the Eee, Dell emails me a promotion for a near-perfect Mom-notebook. So, Mom's getting a Vostro 1000, beefed up with 2GB of RAM for Vista, and I'm getting the Eee PC.

For those unfamiliar with the Eee PC:

Black Eee PC from Newegg

Eee User site

I snagged one of the Black Eees from Newegg last week, it should arrive today. I've been spending quite a bit of time on the Eee user site, reading news, checking out the growing wiki, trying to keep up with fast-paced forum discussions of the growing list of mods, hacks and tricks.

What, are we becoming astral twins or something? I'm typing this comment on my black Eee 710 from Newegg!

The keys take some adaptation, and I'm kind of wishing it had Bluetooth, but overall it's a sweet little machine, particularly with a gig of RAM. It turns some heads t public hotspots, too.

I apologize, but I'm trying to figure out who you are. Do I know you through Pownce or Twitter? :)

My Eee showed up at the UPS Store yesterday, but I didn't have a chance to pick it up. Hopefully today!
