A colleague has one and it looks pretty cool. I'm considering buying one
when the 8G SSD/1GB RAM models are launched next year for about 300 quid,
instead of a replacement battery for my old Libretto 70CT. Form factor is
about the same, but the eeePC/miniBook has much more functionality.

I used noscript for a while, but it's just too much hassle.

Toys R Us and dabs.com sell them too, as the eeePC. A little bit more
expensive, though.
