Introduction

When the Eee PC was announced many people were excited for it, myself included. The thought of a small 7-inch laptop for under $400 would excite anyone! Now this is a budget notebook so you're not going to be playing games on it, but for most people they do 2 things on their computer, surf the web and word processing. Having a small notebook that can easily be carried and used for those functions for that price tag is pretty amazing. Now the notebook comes with Linux pre-installed, that might be a barrier for some people, but we will have to see how we like it. Read on to check out the ASUS Eee PC!

Packaging

The Eee PC comes in a very small plain box with pictures of all the different color variations of the Eee PC you can get. On the back there is the Eee PC's motto, "Easy to Learn, Easy to Work, Easy to Play". So if you were guessing what the "Eee" stood for that is it.


Opening up the retail box we find the Eee PC nicely packaged inside. Getting everything out of the box we have the Eee PC unit, battery, charger, support CD, recovery CD, user's guide, and Windows XP installation guide.
