This for work - a long overdue replacement for my Psion 5. The Eee is a lovely little thing, that being said :)

Yes, and it works with USB 3G/HSDPA modems too :)

Is it fast enough? good for internet and text files? Certainly a great size, almost pocket (big winter coat) size, and less than 1kg!

Oh, fantastic. I've been thinking of getting one of these myself. I miss my Psion too.

I've been having a play around this evening (in fact I'm blogging on it right now). The keyboard is lovely and reminds me of the Psion but with more space. I can type quickly on it. It is plenty fast for the web and text. The processor is 900 MHz ultra low voltage and there is 512 MB of RAM. It whizzes along compared with the Thinkpad 240x, which is pretty quick.

I've been playing around with USB devices. It will recognise and power an external 30 GB USB 2.0 hard drive and and 8 GB flash drive. I plugged my Nikon D50 into it and it came up in the file manager but I couldn't see any files. It failed to recognise the Canon G7. I'll try a Canon S50 tomorrow.

It read an 8GB SDHC memory card in the Eee's built-in reader (the card is flush with the case when inserted, which is very nice).

Another nice touch is the very long external power cable _ it's about three metres long, and the power adapter is nice and small - no bigger than a fat plug.
