Yes.  The 701 did have a very small keyboard which suits my small 
hands.  Great for travelling though.  Was a major bonus for me to lose 
several kilograms from my luggage.

My EeePC 1005HA solved the keyboard problem.   Large keys.  Easy to 
use.  I'm very sure I could write a novel with it or a complete book 
about some aspect of GNU/Linux or one of the BSDs.  10" screen just 
does everything for me including the editing of photographs before 
sending them to a magazine for publication.

The Dell minibook is nice :)
