I have an Atom-powered EeePC myself, but it's a much earlier model (901) 
and is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix.  So while my experience with Asus 
netbooks has so far been excellent, I don't have experience running 
Windows on it to provide any feedback on that software side of things.

Have you tried temporarily writing to specialFolderPath("desktop") to 
see if it saves there?  As a known user-writable folder I would expect 
that should work, in which case it may just be the permissions of the 
directory you're currently using to write to.
