Gear: Asus Eee Note EA-800, eReader Tablets.
Lighting Conditions and the Eee Note:
You need good lighting conditions. There's also a bit of glare going on because of the top layer which is glass and has an anti glare film. If you have a Kindle and compare it you will notice a big difference.

Everyday performance of the Eee Note EA-800?
I use the system for personal notes and reading books. I think it's more of a personal device than a 'business' device. When you need to do things urgently the Eee Note could do it... if you prepare it for the task. For most situations the pen/paper will be faster.
How does the Eee Note perform in cold environments?
It performs well in cold environments. According to the manuals the operating temperature are between 5 Celsius (41 Fahrenheit) and 35 Celsius (95 Fahrenheit).

How does it perform waiting for the bus?
I have my own car... but if I was a passenger the system will do fine for reading books. It won't be a good system for writing notes in a very shaky bus or train.
What about taking notes when getting a phone call?
You need a third hand... or a table to place the Eee Note.
Is the Eee Note usable as a pen/paper device?
For the most part yes. I hate paper... so I like the Eee Note. Obviously you cannot get rid of all paper in this world (at least not yet, but we are moving towards a paperless world).
