I have one.  It is kick ass.  It comes with a customized version of 
Xandros.  All the components work in the installed OS - no driver 
issues.  Asus has announced a SDK for 3rd party apps.

It has WiFi, LAN, 3 USB ports, card reader, VGA out, webcam, ethernet.  
Just about all the features a biz person would need to get her/his job 
done. 

Networking, ethernet OK,  WiFi OK with WPA (no WPA2 support), usb 
tataindicom data card OK.  I believe it can also boot from a USB stick 
but I have not verified it.

A few hackers have a customized Ubuntu to replace Xandros; search 
the 'Net.

HTH
