    Screen resolution is definitely not comparable to normal notebook.

    Had considered a normal notebook. Decided on Eee PC for its weight as I will be using it while travelling. Already had a desktop sitting at home.

    Screen resolution is NOT a problem. There is a modified intel driver that is able to display up to 2048x1536. great for an external display but a PITA for the eeePC 7" screen.

    BTW, for me the 4G SSD of the eeePC is more than sufficient to install win xp pro (trimed-down version), kaspersky anti-virus, ms office, vlc player, QTime, iTunes, firefox, VPN, serv-u (ftp server) & eeeClock (over-clock this baby to 900MHz full-speed.) Total SSD used: 1.84GB only

    eeePC 4G. 2G RAM (+$63), SDHC 8G Extreme III ($160).

    besides weight (1kg vs 2kg) and size, i still feel that a full pc is still more worthwhile to have ... esp we play around with images...
    the eeepc is not a notebook per see actually...

    it's a device that lets you surf net i feel..

    anyway, posting this post on the bus using my eeepc :P

    Why install nLite XP when you can install a full version XP pro?
    Full version runs pretty smooth. Even at 512mb ram.

    My Eee PC before I upgrade to Win XP pro. The LCD plastic shield still intact.

    nLite XP - u just use nLite to cut down a lot of unnec stuff in xp pro (such as shared folder, drivers, help, and all useless services that u don't use in eeePC). result: it takes much smaller space in yr 4G SSD and bootup much faster.

    If you upgrade yr ram to 2GB, you can save 1.5G from your 4G SSD by deleting that huge pagefile. $63 only.

    i dont even use any pagefile. with 2gb ram, i totally did away all pagefiles.

    but then again, will experiment to see if pagefile on ramdisk will be faster then totally without pagefile or not..

    The 4gb (3.8gb after formatting) is enough for the WinXP and resident anti-virus applications. Too lazy to nLite. I use D: removeable 4gb drive for additional applications like MSoffice, CS2 etc....
    Had reduced the VM to 256mb. Pagefile enable. Might want to test disable pagefile and monitor the performance. So far so good.

    no.. there's a SD card slot alongside the eeePC. the bigger card just becomes an ext storage. u can even install and run programs off it.
