I'm considering the Asus EEE PC as an option for Second Signal base station units. The 900 looks fast enough by specs, and in all other regards is more than sufficient. I do have a few questions about the units though, that can be answered by people who have owned one.
1. Is there a fan? Is this unit passively cooled or is there a cooling fan that comes on?
2. Can the unit run in an "Always On" state reliably?
3. Can the unit run with the laptop screen closed without overheating?
Did you have problems with any of the ASUS software? I'm looking at the Windows XP version, but even then it will have Asus software on it. While I've found their hardware to be pretty good, I've never been impressed with Asus from a software or documentation perspective.

a very small fan on the side. Since the Atom uses less power than the celeron.
I would guess that the 900 produces more heat. I havent had it long enough to

installed and use it in the office, so, I should know more soon. I got is
because its small enough to fit on the motorcycle for a trip to Indianapolis
