Netbooks for the Lair

Thanks to Evil DM Productions I was able to pick up a pair of ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-Inch Netbooks for myself and my senior minion who is starting college. we both wanted something lightweight and very portable (The 1000HE fits into my "nerdbag" with plenty of room for my other stuff). This was the first Netbook/laptop for both of us so it was important that it be hassle free, which the 1000HE was. I was up and running straight out of the box. I dumped the pre-packaged bloatware that came with it and uploaded MSOffice and a couple of other applications. I use Skype a lot and my son is on all the social networking sites, the 1000HE handles them great. It runs XP which I like, and the battery lasts around 7 hours so far. I'm not really that computer savvy but I can get around, I did my homework and this was the choice for me and it was a good one. In my opinion I'm getting plenty of bang for the buck, with a system that meets all of our needs.
