	Caveat : If you happen to have unusually large hands, or poor 
eyesight, or both, be sure to buy only one you have spent some time 
handling. With trifocal fingers and arthritic eyeballs, the only use I 
can hope to get out of a 701 is in waiting rooms -- if (big IF) I can get 
it to boot and connect fast enough. And according to the buzz at http://
forum.eeeuser.com/ I am by no means alone in these troubles.

	Also, they are evolving hand over fist. If in doubt, wait a few 
months, maybe another year or so. I wish I had. There are probably a 
couple out there now that would suit me.
