Asus Eee PC 900
(Phoenix, Arizona, USA)
A couple of years ago, my husband got an Eee PC. We were both in graduate school at the time, and he would just throw the laptop in his small bag, pop it out in class, and use it to take notes. I was incredibly jealous. I loved the fact that it was smaller than a standard laptop, super lightweight, simple and affordable. I bought mine about 6 months later, and I got a newer model for the same price.
I love my Asus Eee PC 900, and it is still going strong. For the past year and a half, it has been my primary computing device. It is too small to have a CD drive, but there are three USB ports.
The keyboard is smaller than standard, but I have small hands. After about a week of typing on the Eee PC, I could type as easily and quickly on this small keyboard as I did on a standard size. The speakers on this model are not great, so I use headphones most of the time.
Obviously this computer is not as powerful as larger, more expensive machines, but it has definitely been worth the $400 I spent. It has an integrated 1.3 megapixel web cam. My Eee PC came with 16 GB SSD, which has been plenty for my needs. It also came with a free sleeve/case.
My father-in-law also bought an Eee PC around the same time, and he uses his often on the airplane. It is the perfect size for travel.
Overall, I am very pleased with this laptop and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a small and simple device. I look forward to buying another Asus laptop in the future.
