This is my eee PC. I thought at the beginning of the trip that it would be a little silly to bring along, but it's proved itself most useful during downtime (like now). I can now touch type with it – which is amazing and along with a mouse it's very useful. The desktop linux distro is alright, although some apps don't work quite like you'd hope and the machine gets a little underpowered while multitasking. But all in all it does pull its weight.
