I suppose the very first topic here is asking how many forum members have an Eee PC.

I am currently using a black 701 running eeeXubuntu r3 (Gutsy 7.10) as my main gadget. smile.gif
Despite the apparently a bit dated hardware specs, I am very satisfied with its performaces, thanks to the fast SSD.
The keyboard is just enough for touchtyping. And I have no big problems working with the 7" screen (e.g. with Swiftfox fullscreen addons).
Compiz Fusion runs very smoothly and surprisingly takes very little overhead (10MB or so of RAM, i guess).
Recently I've bought the PCI BT-MicroEDR2 USB, the smallest bluetooth USB dongle available (Brando seems to be selling a similar product, but I am not veyr sure). I will use the USB port for the time being, until I am comfortable enough/i can find someone to add an extra USB usb inside the machine and attach the dongle to it.

Really looking forward to the first release of Debian/EeePC. It's actually working mostly OOTB now, but I still want to wait for the few fixes before I migrate to that. Then I can have both my C3200 and my 701 run the same full-fledged distro. wink.gif

I have a 4G surf, running Eeebuntu NBR 2.0, and it's a great little machine. Now it did not replace my Zaurus C1000, yet it has its own function in my computing needs. I am planning to replace the 4G with a 1000HA (10" screen, 1GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, Win XP [yuck, will install Ubuntu NBR on it])

Update:

Sold the EeePC 4G Surf. Got the EeePC 1000HA, and the 10 inch screen is great! Installed Ubuntu 9.04 on it, dual boot with Windoze (need it for some work related stuff)
