Other than the miniscule keyboard on the XO, the only misgiving I have about it is based solely on aesthetic grounds: it's appealing to kids because it LOOKS like a kid's computer. I'm not sure I'd want to pull the green-and-white XO out of a bag while in public, open it, adjust its antennae, and begin any serious work project on it, at least not without sunglasses to disguise myself. I could see myself more easily (and comfortably) using the Eee PC in public, despite its ludicrous name. (And who exactly was the person who dreamed up THAT moniker? Asus should sue to get its money back!)

I have tried and tested both the XO and the Eee. I actually use the Asus Eee when I travel because of its great bit of software it comes loaded with. I added a 4G SD card and use memory sticks for files between my systems.

I've done a complete review of the Asus Eee PC at http://www.squidoo.com/AsusEeePc/
