I’m writing this on my son’s Asus eee PC netbook. I’m going to be looking at netbooks to buy for my daughter for Xmas. This is a quick post, since my fingers don’t really fit on this small keyboard. Looking for good combination of price/keyboard/battery life/style. My daughter wants Ubuntu on it. It looks like it is harder to buy a netbook with preinstalled Linux than I thought. Will probably have to pay the Windows tax and get 7 on it. I’ll post a review of whatever I get her after Xmas.
