My New Toy: Asus Eee PC 701SD

I got this from for $120 shipped. Not bad, eh? Yeah, it's only 900MHz, but I did upgrade the RAM to 1GB. The 8GB SSD is slow for writes but not bad for reads. I can always upgrade it if necessary. I'm running some benchmarks on it now. I'm trying to find decent jukebox software so that I can possibly turn this thing into a touchscreen jukebox. If not, I'll probably sell it on ebay or something. It's a decent computing experience overall. Flash runs smooth in full screen. The internal speakers are ok. The screen is obviously small, but I don't think it's annoying. I might try and run Windows 7 on it. Stay tuned for the benchmarks.
