...And I've never integrated video before, so I'm wondering how some games will perform. I put Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory on high settings and it runs surprisingly choppily, so I have to keep that low. Starcraft works :D pleasantly suprised to find people on Battlenet.
Anyway, I want to try Warcraft 3 bit I don't know how it'l do, and to get anything I've got to make isos since there's no cupholder, does anyone have any lightweight suggestions?
By the way, if anyone is looking for a good, portable computer this is the way to go.

I have that very PC. 900ha.

I was told when I bought it that it really won't play games. I tried dwarf fortress, and it wouldn't play that.
I assume if the game is a number of years old, it'll be fine. But, really, the Eee isn't a gaming pc. If you want to play games, get a real proper pc for it.

You aren't going to play any remotely modern games on an Eee, older games should work though, I'm not sure about how old though.

If you want a gaming netbook, look at the Asus N10jc
http://www.n10user.com/forum25-n10-games.html

It has a switch that lets you change between the Intel integrated graphics (which gets you another hour of battery life for up to 5.5 hours) or to the Nvidia 9300gs which will run many games well. See the link above for games tested on the N10.

I'd need an external CD drive to install it...
or download it.

Star Control 2
One of the best classic games, merging strategy and adventure with action based combat. It's difficult to get started, but it's loads of fun.

List of games which work on the Eee PC with instructions on how to get them to work. I'd recommend Age of Empires 2, Baldur's Gate 2, Deus Ex and Max Payne.

I'm sorry ST! :o

Okay, so some more valid titles.

It's free! It's fun! A more expanded version has now been made for the DS and XBLA!
Plus, you can make your own levels, or download levels made by others.

Well, actually, you could just go here to get some of the best indie games around. Not all are free, but they're great. :)

Battlefield 1942 apparently works fine with 20-40FPS. Servers are still up.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad S10. I'm pretty satisfied with it. There's no CD drive, and it can't even run San Andreas respectably, but that's not what I bought it for anyway. I wanted something I could use to write papers and check email, and it performs those tasks wonderfully.
