You have one in pink?!

I am in love!

I first saw the Eee PC at the 2007 VITTA Conference. It was quite impressive – a small, light-weight notebook computer for under $500. I decided to “file that one away”.
My friends and family know that when I put my mind to something, I am fairly determined to do it well – and setting up a blog was going to be no exception!
Wouldn’t it be great to have a device that was portable enough to pop in your bag allowing you to jot down ideas or create blog posts almost anywhere?
Suddenly, the Eee PC was “pulled out of the filing cabinet”!
After a little research into pricing, specs, etc…I decided that the Eee PC could be very useful for “anytime, anywhere” blogging!
And the deciding factor? They had one in pink! 😉
I have to admit, I’m pleasantly surprised. It comes out of the box with everything I need and the simplicity of the
Linux Operating System makes it a breeze to use.
My only disappointment is that the quotation marks key doesn’t work and for some strange reason the touch pad and my daughter’s index finger are “incompatible” so she has to use a mouse!

One thing’s for sure though – this type of device is quickly gaining popularity. HP have just released their HP Mini, selling for around $800 and who knows what will come next…

  1. I agree. I think these devices will shape the future for mobile learning. Daryl Fraser is very keen on them. He would like to see one in the hands of every student. Congratulations on getting your blog up and running, by the way. V cool.

  2. I’m pleased to say that the tech support staff at ASUS were really helpful in solving my Eee PC issues…The keyboard settings were incorrect – should have been set to English US in order for the quotation marks key to function. My daughter is now happily using the touch pad as we altered the settings to “most sensitive”. So now we are all happy Eee PC users! 🙂
