ASUS Eee PC 1000 40G – Pearl White NetBook Intel Atom 10.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great portability. I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix and with my 3G service I am on the internet almost anywhere.

Very well thought out product.

Touchpad is easy to use, has two finger scroll, very easy to use. Thought I would have to pack along a mouse (I usually hate touchpads), but this one works fine.

I am getting a little older, and the vision isn't what it used to be, but the screen is still large enough for me to see just fine.

Cons: The sound from the speakers is pretty lame, but I really expected that. If you want good sound, plug in some ear phones.

Other Thoughts: Battery life is very good. I used the netbook on and off for a couple days without re-charging. Similar use with other laptops required daily charging.

If you want portable, and don't need a power house laptop and aren't wedded to (ugh) windows, this is great.

AZiO AWU254 802.11g 54Mbps Wireless Pen Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works great with linux. I am using the 2.6.24 kernel, and built the kernel with:
No external drivers required, although you do need the firmware file rt73.bin installed into /lib/firmware

Should work with any distro that has the rt2x00 drivers in the kernel

Cons: The ralink driver wouldn't build, problems with the Makefile and Extra CFLAGS. Not much of a con, since the kernel drivers are definitely the way to go.

Other Thoughts: Also works with the serial monkey drivers

APEX MI-100 Black / Mirror finish Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: A little bigger than most mini itx cases. Easy to install a normal dvd-rw. Removing the power supply makes installation of all the components pretty easy.

Cons: No 5 pin sata power connector, only 4 pin molex. Had to buy an adapter
