I bought one of those, the Asus 900AX. It was $198 but I think the offer
expired months ago (the salesperson indicated to me that they were
losing money on them.)

A good deal for the money, IMHO. The keyboard & trackpad are no worse
than any other <10in netbook that I've used (ie bad, but inevitably so.)

If you just want a server, I think that the Eeebox nettops are available
around the place for $200ish.
