My EeePC is also a 701.
As far as I can see, Fedora-10 runs exactly the same on this machine
as on my other laptops.
Is your objection to Fedora-10 itself?
(In which case you might like Eeebuntu.)
Or is there some problem with running Fedora-10 on this machine?

If I had my time again I would probably use ext2 rather than ext3
as I have seen some warnings against ext3 on SSDs.
I don't know if it is possible to downgrade an existing system?
