    not bad, except it seems to run hot, so try to get a cooler.

    you may also take a look at a cheaper 1 with a bit smaller screen 7" and 30gb HD

    else, if the eeePC's 20gb HD is small for you, i would get that HP

    ps. i really liked your desktop screenshot walpaper + panel

    -edit-
    in your blog post

    It looks ok, The reviews are largely favourable (and no one complaining about it not having Windows), but it seems to be hot (which can happen to any notebook) at times and has a small battery (to be expected). If it has what you want, and you can't get yourself a Thinkpad (even the smaller ones), it seems like a good deal.

    I prefer the Acer Aspire One: http://www.acer.com/aspireone/
    There is a model with a 120gb hard drive.

    I wouldn't recommend the HP Mini-Note; I'm not a huge fan of Via processors. If the EeePC doesn't do it for you, I too would recommend the Acer.
