What do you do with it?  I find the price attractive, but wonder how
I'd feel if I can't customize it much (which I assume but don't know
is the case).  What happens first time I want to use an app that's not
already installed?  (Disclaimer: I haven't researched more extensively
than reading the official literature.)

What I really want is a super-cheap notebook regardless of power, etc.
The eee-pc just happens to be at the bottom of the price curve.
