Only if you want a machine that bricks easy and you need a magnifying glass
to read.  I purchased an ASUS EEE last week and it has a lot of things going

ports for things like a mouse, or monitor if you chose, a flash drive or
memory sticks.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt.  I guess you missed that one."
