I've got an Asus EeePC 900A and love it. I had an EeePC 4gig but traded 
"up". Not running Kubuntu but Eeebuntu. The choice was because it's a 
specially optimized version of Ubuntu just for the E. No fiddling or 
anything. _Everything_  just works "right-out-of-the-box".

Treat all stressful situations like a dog does.
If you can't eat it or play with it, 
just pee on it and walk away
