I am  looking at buying one of the 7 inch EEPC boxes as a second laptop.  Sort of my go everywhere machine that I don't have to worry as much about in terms of theft protection (not doing anything stupid obviously) and just throwing it in a sack for vacations...  I'd like to buy an data connect card or tethering option that would work reliably with this machine, my regular notebook, and possibly a Mac.  I have an Intel iMac at home and wouldn't mind a backup internet solution.

Sierra devices are very Linux friendly and setup instructions are posted on their site.  It should be noted that AT&T does not support Linux.
