I've seen a few photos of the product line, but that's as close as I
got. I am assuming you mean the 14 GB SD card is the storage medium, and
not the working memory...yes?
The small screen probably would not bother me as much as a small
keyboard. I'll look for one the next time I'm at a microcenter store,
though I'm not in the market for a new laptop or travel computer. But I
like the technology.
I like ASUS stuff. All the desktops I have built in the last 10 years
have had ASUS motherboards.
