I got an eeePc for traveling this summer. The following image documents a watershed moment: PiTiVi running on an eeePc. As you can see, there are some screen size issues to work out. But it does work, and I was able to make some editing actions. The eeePc seems to have some trouble playing back the high-res video I took from my friend's cannon powershot. After about 15 seconds, playback becomes jerky. This is in both PiTiVi and Totem. I'll try the same video on my thinkpad to make sure the file isn't corrupt in some way. In any case, I'll have to re-encode the video at a lower resolution / higher compression to save space. Hopefull the playback issues will be taken care of at the same time.
