A Little Addition To The Hardware Family

Posted 08-17-2010 at 06:55 AM by brianL

I bought a netbook yesterday. Cute little buggers, aren't they? I would have liked an ARM-based one, but there are none (decent ones, anyway) readily available. Intel Atom has a monopoly, it seems. So I got an Asus eeepc 1001HA for just under 200. It's got XP Home preinstalled, and I've put Ubuntu Netbook Edition on it. I don't know how long this arrangement will last. Not keen on the XP, after all I've got XP Pro on my laptop, so that may have to go sooner or later. UNE is OK, so far. We shall see...
