The Asus Eee PC is a diminutive sub-notebook computer that comes pre-installed with Linux and a host of installed applications including a web browser, anti-virus, Skype and instant messaging software.

There have been some very comprehensive reviews of the Eee written and rather than write another one, I wanted to look at who would actually use the Eee and perhaps answer a few questions specific to Windows users.

Let’s start off with a few cold, hard facts…

Features of the Asus Eee PC (4G model)

* 900MHz Intel Celeron processor
* 512MB RAM
* 4GB solid state disk (SSD)
* Lots of connector ports: 3 USB2 sockets, ethernet port, microphone and headphone sockets, VGA output, and SD card reader.
* Built-in 802.11b/g wi-fi for wireless Internet connectivity.
* 7-inch, 800 x 480 resolution TFT display screen flanked by stereo speakers.

The Asus Eeec PC is very different from most other laptop computers and yet it still offers a similar set of benefits:

Benefits of the Asus Eee PC
