    We have one xp one in PE who love it. Had a tablet PC down there that they had no end of problems with. EEE just seems to work
    Two linux ones. One is used for SMT note taking during meetings and one is our emergency one for network testing, diagnosis and playing around with. Just about Instant on is great!

    Well I've had my one as XP Pro for about 4 months now, and not had a single problem at all.

    Connects to school, home and pub ( ) wirelessly with no fuss, runs all software I need (tested with IE6, 7, 8 Beta, Firefox, MS Office 2003 suite, Flash MX, Dreamweaver MX, Sophos (did slow down but still usable) ). Used it for SD card transfer from cameras, local and network printing, MSN Messenger. The built-in camera works as a webcam and digital camera/video recorder, and MovieMaker is no more buggy than on any other hardware platform.


    Battery life for "regular" use (i.e. using a VLP, Internet browsing, typing in Word) clocks in at around 1.5 hours (maybe 2 at a push, if you turned the backlight down a lot and turned off all but the most essential things (no sound, no wireless connection, no network connection etc.) ) It's not brilliant, but it's certainly not bad.
    Oh, and charging time is 1 minute charge = 1 minutes use, so around 90 minutes for a full charge.

    All in all, it's exactly like a regular laptop.
    Only smaller.

    For all useful EEEPC related stuff check out EeeUser.com ASUS Eee PC 701, 900, 901, 1000 Blog Forum Wiki Community.

    The Wiki has a lot of install info - especially for XP.

    And the forum is also very good.

    Asus EE PC 1000H

    Hi there
    Asus EE PC 1000H best model by far I've got 120 and so far manage to image just over half with windows XP pro. No problems yet but will let you know. I wouldnt bother with the older models, go for the 1000H!

    + 80GB 2.5" sata harddrive
    + battery life 4 to 7 hours! (depending on what your doing and screen brightness, but you can easily get over 4 hours)
    + 10" inch screen

    Smile software sources for eeePC linux version?

    I have an eeePC 900 linux version with 16 GB flashdrive and Xandros linux installed, including OpenOffice 2.0

    I am looking for development and educational software for the Linux version, but haven't had much luck so far...Xandrox.com has almost no software available, and eeePCfiles.com has nothing really fascinating...

    Since Xandrox is derived from Debian, I have tried to find Debian and Ubuntu software which will run on the eeePC without trouble..but the forums are all filled up with horror stories about how Debian and Ubuntu SW doesn't work on the eeePC!!!

    So, if any of you out there know of a reliable source of freeware/shareware or developer tools for the Xandrox eeePC, drop me a line!

    Linux Flavour

    Two problems I am finding with these machines is -

    .They have intermittent problems connecting to WIFI. Windows Vista Laptops in the same School are connecting fine to the same APs

    .Cant find a driver for the schools Epson Aculaser CX11N printer; tried installing similar drivers that come bundled with the OS, no luck.

    We have gotten ourselves 400 of these little machines, was just wondering did any of you guys change the default logins on them? Is there any way to get them to use AD login details, at the actual login screen when the machine is turned on? Also do any of you have available any of the start up scripts you are using to add user shares etc?

    Make sure you have windows XP pro on there

    Yes have a default login for admin
    yes you can have AD login details,
    you need to have mandatory profiles, to speed up login on times- have less than 2mb profile size

    you need to set the power options <--- such as turning off standby and hibernate mode. set the laptop to if the screen/lid is closed do nothing. a issue I'm having when kids close the lid while the laptops are shutting down it goes into a standby mode - wish i knew this about it before.

    anything else PM me

    Nice one Steve! thanks for the reply, but to be honest, we aren't to keen on modifying them, we want to keep the standard Xandros install on them, preferably even in Easy mode. We have them in on a pilot scheme and the powers above want to know what we can do out of the box without adding an XP licence
