    Eughh OS X

    2000 is lighter on resources than XP, and XP has crappy themes and effects to load, but it has a quicker boot time than 2K.

    Do you find WinME easier to use than the distro pre-installed on the EeePC as it is, OOTB?

    Re: Asus EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE........

    Seeing as my laptop has just gawn and broke (yet another one...I don't know what I do to them!) I'm in the market for a portable device that I can use for doing work on, checking e-mails and configuring switches and routers etc via console and web interface.

    Another ThinkPad would be lovely but I'm not entirely sure the budget is going to stretch to this at the moment (Student loans, overdraft etc etc.....it's my own fault for choosing uni!) so the EEE has taken my interest somewhat.

    Where's the best place to get them from, is RM the only place or are there other alternatives for getting a quote?

    2000 would install on anything without modification unlike XP, so 2000 is prob very good idea for it.

    Misco and PCWB have them listed, also out of stock. They make the same claims about lead times for stock (early Jan).

    If you wanted to buy over the counter, PC World or Toys R Us might be worth a try.

    PC World has got them in stock. Saw one in my local store today and I have to admit that I was pretty impressed by it.

    It's a nice bit of kit isn't it?

    Presumably you can you upgrade the hard drive in them with a suitable 2.5" drive?

    They have no mechanical hard drive, the 4GB disk is an onboard and non-removable flash disk. There are 3 USB ports for pendrive or USB 2.5"/3.5" external and an SD flash card slot, so space isn't so much of an issue.
