But if flash memory life really worries you, you can buy an 8GB SD memory card for $20, stick it into your Eee and place the most frequently written-to filesystems (/var, swap) on it. If it ever goes wrong you just replace it (and maybe get a new one for free if inside the 5-year warranty).
I have a similar setup and it works fine. Just be sure to buy a fast SD card or suspend will take a long time.
