Re: So what do you think? Worth 299?
The Eee are pretty good IMO. But with $100 or $200 more, then you can get an really nice laptop where you can multitask more.
I think the Eee cant do things like watch HD videos on youtube.
But its a nice laptop for trips and school to like check the mail, web browse, or listen to some video and stuff.
Is it worth that much?
It all depends on you on how you plan to use it.
