Me on Christmas 2007 morning

Me opening my Asus Eee PC 4GHere is a picture of me opening my Asus Eee PC 4G.

I knew that I was getting it. Nancy wanted to get me a laptop for Christmas, since my last one died early in 2007. I had been reading about the Asus Eee PC. I showed Nancy that she could order it from Newegg.com. She did. It arrived in October. Newegg’s return policy for laptops allows 30 days from delivery, so she had me open it and make sure that it worked. Once I verified that it worked, I had to repackage it. Nancy then whisked it away and wrapped it up.

I have been using it for a bit over a week now. I like it a lot. I am a Linux geek, so the Linux OS on the laptop is perfect for me. It is amazing small and portable. I have pretty much gotten used to the small keyboard. The “shift” key on the far right is a bit farther out than I am used to, and I keep pushing the “up” arrow key instead. The small screen is very sharp. This makes the small screen quite usable. And with the solid-state flash drive, it boots quickly.
