How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Computer Shopper says:

In the end, like most ultraportables, the Eee PC isn't for everyone. Its tiny keyboard, limited performance, and stunted storage are serious compromises that will eliminate it from consideration by some. But when portability is king, and computing needs are few, this notebook is an attractive option. We highly recommend it for entry-level users with small budgets, as well as for frequent travelers looking for a super-cheap secondary system they can take on the road.
