I want a small, durable gadget with long battery life, that I may type as often as possible if I wish. I consider buying a Pre and a folding keyboard, as well. The following article, however, piqued my interest in EEE pcs:

12_Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons. I prefer ASUS because of their reputation for reliability on this forum, and the few problems reported with their products on this forum.
I dislike HP based on the quality of all of the products of theirs that I have purchased, especially the poor hardware compatibility of their computer products.
13_What country do you live in? The United States of America
