Well I finally got an EeePC, after leaving my old job (hooray!) I no longer had a laptop to use on the road, except for our old HP that we lovingly named “Fatty”. Since I am doing computer service work for people, having a laptop with me is a huge time saver and convenience. I didn’t want to spend more money on a laptop than I would be able to quickly recover so I thought an EeePC would be perfect. I spent lots of time on my favorite online store (it might be newegg…) looking at all of the netbooks and user reviews and decided on the EeePC 1000HE.
