When Asus first announced its Eee PC lineup, the company made it sound like the 2G, 4G, and 8G models would be almost identical. The Surf editions of each would lack webcams and would come with lower capacity batteries, but that was about it, right? Well, not exactly.

When the 2G model was released, we discovered that it lacks some of the software available on the 4GB version of the Eee PC. That shouldn't be particularly surprising, since the 2G Surf has half the storage space. But while Asus packed a little surprise in the package, shipping the 2G Surf with 512MB of RAM instead of the promised 256, the company also put a slower processor 800MHz in the unit, which is underclocked to run at 571MHz.

So while you save some dough when you buy a $299 2G Eee PC instead of the $399 4G or $349 4G Surf, you get a lot less computer for you money. Pocketables has put together a nice list of 10 reasons to avoid the 2G Surf. You know, because it's not a real list unless it's got 10 things in it.

If you're thinking of picking up an Eee PC 2G Surf, you really owe it to yourself to check out the full list first. But there's one thing to keep in mind: $299 is a pretty darn good price for a computer. And I wouldn't really expect it to be as powerful as a $399 computer, would you? That said, if you can afford to spend a few extra bucks, you definitely get what you pay for.
