    CC3 with modern Asus minibooks

    Hi All,

    Im new here and would like to start by asking a question...

    Has anyone tried to get the newer XP Asus minibooks to work on an RM CC3 network?

    Many Thanks
    James

    Are they not XP home? I beleive they are making a product called RM connector for that purpose, was speaking to a rep at a conference a while back. I have heard they are not pushing for the linux version of this now meaning the linux notebooks will remain unsupported in connecting to the CC3 / 4 networks.

    Yeah they are XP home at the moment, they have discontinued making the linux units now...

    I was thinking of building them to CC3 with XP Pro? obviously paying for licenses...

    Do you think I will have problems?

    Cheers

    @Fantom:

    As long as you slipstream the drivers into the build area I don't see why not.

    Tis a shame cus I quite liked the linux ones (well our one has eeeBuntu on it now the original linux was rubbish)

    You shouldn't have any problems, although the RM bloatware will slow it down somewhat from what it is like now.

    I would give it a test installing pro on there and making sure the hardware buttons work (fn etc), some of the Asus eeePCs have hardware buttons controlling the wireless and if they are not working it can cause some problems.

    Worth speaking to RM about Connector anyway, especially on a price POV - it will be vastly less than an XP licence per PC, or expanding a site licence.
