Has anyone tried this? Is it worth it for us to create a sub-forum for it? From everything I've read, it seems like a pretty cool device and is kinda in the realm of the other devices we support here.

Thoughts/Opinions?

A new forum will be great. But how about http://www.eeeuser.com/ , which has already been the most popular site with tons of useful tips, howtos and hacks?

I have got my Eee PC 701 (4G) black for a couple of weeks and now I am extremely happy with this true mobile solution! The best thing is with (eee)(x/k)ubuntu it can enjoy all the ubuntu packages (even Compiz fusion runs surprisingly smoothly). At this unprecedented low price for such a laptop no wonder why it has generated so much buzz, far more than the Z undoubtedly. cool.gif

cool.gif Just got my black 4G last week. I can run the usb stick version of Kopi/Kapi directly! Or I can use the data files in the supplied kdepim suite. The form factor is likely to make it the main portable machine for me, I can also carry the Z of the moment in the same bag! I'm just in the middle of installing eeexubuntu to the flash drive. I may restore to the original and try dual booting from the SDHC card. All sorts of possibilities. The link to the forum in ZDevil's post is well worth a look. biggrin.gif

I may try and do a hack to put the 16 GB CF card inside it and experiment away!

About a new forum... unsure.gif I suppose it depends how many Z owners get one as well? But if the Nokia, Simpad etc rate a forum .. why not?

I'm thinking that tricks from the Z world like putting home on Sd etc would be transferrable...
