So you're really after the EeePC 1000 model, which it appears is not
sold in Australia. This means you'll have to go with the 1000H - which
does not have a flash drive.

I also recently discovered that the EeePC 1000 model and it's
so-called 40GB SDD is not a 40GB SDD at all - it's an 8GB SDD with a
32GB SD card stick in the slot.. misleading in my opinion and rather


Also, Dell just released their EeePC competing product, the Mini 9,
which is more like an EeePC 901.

As for installing Ubuntu on an EeePC, don't see any issue with that.
