i own a 4gig eeepc and i dont use it for viewing photos. First, i installed XP. I didnt strip it down. So i'm left with about 2gigs. After install MSoffice etc, i'm left with about 1.5gigs.. As it's my secondary laptop, i use it for portablity, surfnet and MSN-ing on the go.
Partly because the screen res. sucks. 800x480. I managed to hack it to 800x600 but it seems abit stretched. But heck, i need better resolution to view my websites without scrollbars.
