    If that's what I think it is, it is $299 at Target. I saw it last week and told DH that it would be perfect to take on vacation!

    Slightly different version. I just went to the Target site. This version just came out. But it would be perfect for business trips and vacations. :D

    Our teachers at high school had E-register on their laptops, and cos the P.E teachers had to carry theirs round with them, where as other teachers had just one room, they got these Asus ones, they where TINY and fitted in the palm of your hand!
    Apparently all the students got given them, too, now, as the laptops we used to have where so clunky.

    It'd be perfect for school... let me know how it is!

    Once I get it, I will take some pictures and post them, as well as share how the first tinkering goes. I'm very excited.

    Very true, especially due the super reasonable price.

    I'm waiting on your review before I decide :yes: I've seen the $299 one at Target. But, if the one your getting is better than I can certainly swing another $50

    yeah its important to be careful, the one FD has scoped out is a very recent upgrade to the line and is definitely better than the old ones. The old ones should come at a significant discount to be considered good value now the new one is out

    I have to say, I'm super stoked. :D I will be keeping an eye out for the UPS man tomorrow. I think it's going to be well worth the price, especially for my needs. :D I still use XP, so I'm happy it comes with that. I will just be adding the 2003 Word to it. I've heard that speakers are not great in these types of machines, but that's not really what I need it for.
