I bought an EEE PC - the one with the 10" screen that comes with XP. I  
quickly loaded Ubuntu and managed to get everything working except the  
power saving stuff.

The hardware was great except for the stub of the right shift key,  
which prevented me from really being able to type on it.

 From what I can see of the Acer they have managed to put two large  
shift keys in. I can't tell if they have compromised anything else on  
the keyboard.
