I love my EEE PC, it’s small and ideal for everywhere I want to take it! Now it appears that you might just be able to get one for free!
According to Coolsmartphone News Orange are about to offer them free of charge with their data dongle packages – giving you a USB data dongle, and 3GB of Bandwidth for Â£25 per month over 24 months.
That actually brings the price in at Â£600 over 2 years (nearly twice what I paid for mine), but I guess at least you’ve got it online semi-permanently without worrying about it too much!

Interesting idea. Still an ok price when it’s spread out like that.
I loves my EeePC. I dumped the Linux though and installed XP instead – far better for my uses.

I debated which way I’d go with it when I bought it – but when I sat down and thought about it, I use all open source apps anyway (Firefox, Thunderbird, Open Office etc.) that are all pre-installed on the Eee.
After demonstrating the advanced desktop to my other half, she agreed she’d happily go to linux, if it got easier (which is all it lacks in my opinion), and you could get iTunes for it.
I managed to solve the problem of syncing Thunderbird on my Windows PC with my Pocket PC sometime ago, so the number of reasons not to swap are coming down all the while!
