說真的，個人對於EeePC 701當初推出時的印象還是相當強烈，為此還寫了一篇「從補足Linux軟硬體最後一哩的角度看EeePC」稱讚。可是二年過去，線上販售的小筆電都只剩下Windows XP或是Windows 7 Starter了。
當年看到EeePC701 Linux的介面，就覺得是個不錯的嘗試，在當時第一隻iPhone剛推出還只接受Web App開發模式的時候，EeePC這樣陳列型的介面，已經可以使用許多桌上型軟體，但是在精緻度和易用度上，很可惜沒有繼續再做相關的改進。
接著看到Kindle或iPad才一窩蜂要做電子書或平板，但是說真的，比較能夠讓消費者願意嘗試新類型的產品，結果還是要靠微軟的Courier，或是等Intel/Nokia的Meego完成並有產品上市了吧。最後我必須說：是的，小筆電可以多工、可以看Flash。可是他讓我在已有筆電的狀況下，還是遇到很多問題。而這些部分的需求和答案，是iPad或者之後的其他產品才能夠解決的。而至於iPad的問題，還是先等到iPhone OS 4.0發佈之後再說吧。
Really, the individual was first introduced for the EeePC 701 is still very strong impression, this has also written a "make up Linux software and hardware from the perspective of the last mile EeePC" praise. But over the past two years, sell online only left a small laptop Windows XP or Windows 7 Starter was.
ZDNet even wrote a "small electrically with the iPad to learn 10 things" (although there are 12 points, spoke with me here a bit like ), personal feel of nicely, but it is ironic that, in 2007 introduced since the first small power, why it should instead go back to the advantages of learning iPad? In fact, of the firms in which there made some efforts, but unfortunately did not last, or simply some of the issues had not been resolved.
1. Interface further progress
Then see the EeePC701 Linux interface, the feel is a good attempt at that time also just launched the first iPhone only accept only when the Web App development model, EeePC display this type of interface has a number of desktop software can be used However, reliability and ease of use in the refined degree, it is a pity not to do related improvements.
Look back iPad / iPhone interface, the interface actually shows the definition of EeePC Linux is not wrong, in fact, very good.Unfortunately, there is no continuity and the lack of improvements and fixes, compared to become like a prototype interface.
2. Software / Application of the lack of content
Simply speaking, is not everyone doing AppStore. Not onlyUbuntu software download mechanism to change their center for software , even launching its own music store . Even Intel wants the Moblin (now Meego) built-in storage software. But the original manufacturer various small power almost all Linux works with the cooperation of a home, the idea of holding such EeePC interface to launch and wait until Windows XP / 7 Starter of the bargain got, this market is no longer operating.
And when I bought a EeePC 701 uses, in addition to the small size of the keyboard than the problem of adaptation. Again that some software is to use the Linux native resolution, there will be a number of operating conditions, and this is the situation of lack of optimization software.
At present, a similar pattern makers iPad, more well known isArchos launched Android flat (not a small laptop), but they seem to only their own built-in software that stores it wants to (the problem seems to be out for their equipment in AppMarket The resolution does not support, so we had to get their own software store).
3. Second, the synchronization between computers
When did Nokia do Netbook, made some small power problems. Some data synchronization part, may be able to use like Dropbox or Ubuntu One such network services ( also For iPhone Programming ) (ASUS seemed to have pushed their own Vibe), of course, more thorough, it can use network-based chrome OS , unfortunately since last year, because the system itself is not yet complete, so it has not used the actual products.
Small electronic products where good?
If you want to light a small power, I would choose Sharp Z1 , a pity not to sell Taiwan.
Want to address an interesting, innovative applications, it is considered litl Easel , because the purpose is indeed very interesting, but unfortunately is currently the minority. I have to turn 90 degrees EeePC read comics picture files, then use the space bar for page, then I think that is actually very easy.
In fact, when small electrical products in the general market orientation can be said is correct, it is a pity that the last attempt to seize the short interest, or rather the small power notebook computers when the general sale, and not continue to cultivate their own original content of the product. Then more and more small power station, but it is still a lower-order with the hardware. Do not understand the hardware differences compared to the last it is very difficult to understand users, 10/11 inch "little" laptop with 12/13 inch difference in the general notebook Where is, to gradually erode away the original laptop market.
Then rush to see the Kindle or iPad only do e-books or flat, but really, compared to consumers willing to try new types of products, results or rely on Microsoft's Courier , or other Intel / Nokia's Meego completed and have a product listing instead.Finally, I must say: Yes, small electrical work can be more, you can see Flash. But he let me have notebook the situation, or encounter many problems. Some of these needs and answer, after a iPad or other products will be able to solve. As for the iPad the problem, or first wait until iPhone OS 4.0 was releasedthen.
