My two cents -- I've got both an EEE pc AND n800.  They fill different 
niches.  I find the n800 great for RSS, email (Claws), simple web 
surfing, and poking around a couple simple games in bed.  Stuff a touch 
screen does well.   Who wants to sit up and beat on a keyboard when one 
is snuggling under the warm blankets...?  

  When I do feel inspired enough to sit up and keyboard, I use the eee 
for YouTubing and other video oriented surfing plus minor editing for 
email and blog reply's.   I've just installed Ubuntu eee on the eee's 
external card, which makes it so you can boot into ubuntu or xandros, 
which is nice.  Getting XP installed is next. 

  Of the two, the n800 sees a lot more use.  I could probably do without 
the eee, you'll have a battle to take away my n800.
