My new toy

Posted on:April 14 2008

Recently I bought myself a little new toy, it's an Eee PC. I ordered via Internet and never saw an Eee PC before in real life until the package arrived, so I was totally surprised that it is THAT small. Here is a picture of it in action, compared to a normal PC DVD Box:
I totally like it, especially because it is very handy compared to a normal notebook. The preinstalled Xandros Linux OS is ok, although you need a lot of manual tweaking in the config files and even some bug fixing in the boot scripts until it gets usable for a more technical user. After I had changed the font sizes of KDE and installed Opera (ideal browser for that screensize btw, firefox is still not able to resize webpages correctly and about 3 times slower than Opera on this system) I'm totally happy with that piece of hardware, I can really recommend it if you are away on business a lot, like me.

I simply used geizhals.at, it offers a meta search for all austrian online shops :)

Should try Firefox 3.

It somehow annoys me that the screen doesnt cover the whole space that is there. If i was to get an Eee PC, 'd wait for a version where it does.

does the fan start often?

with passive cooling and a screen that covers the whole space the eee would be perfect. :)
