We purchased a handful after ³experimenting² last year. The Smackdown at
FOSSVT last year helped me narrow down the choice to EEE900 (10²) and it¹s a
solid little box. I am running them with Ubuntu, which has been a work in
progress but I am pretty confident in the image we are currently using ­
does everything we need it to. I hope to expand these to a full portable lab
next year, and if that works out I would consider these for a future 1:1. I
particularly appreciate the battery life, as we are struggling with ³full
sized² laptops and a 3-hour battery life when people want to use them
back-to-back all day.
