    Re: RM Asus Laptop

    W00t!! ours came through. Dammit, internal DNS doesn't seem to work. Nayone else have fun setting this up? Got it on a static IP, set the DNS servers in both wired and wireless but everytime time we try and go to http://intranet (set in our local dns) it takes us to an external website. Apart from that everything seems fine but can't understand why it is ignoring internal addresses.

    IP works and we have the names set to bypass proxy. Another example is trying to go to server4, it goes to server4.com!

    Any ideas?

    Using mine which I got today.

    Screen is too small.

    Certain apps keep crashing.

    Updates dont work.

    Is very cool, but damn that screen.

    I will be buying one, probably the new one with the 1024 width screen and 12 gig HD, bugger the cost because it looks great.

    File manager is a bit lame. Drop into terminal window and change to super user and type command rather than right click to format an sd card? Please!

    It is amazing as a gadget, but not for schools, at least not as a desktop / laptop replacement.

    They're also available on the Tesco Computers for Schools scheme.

    2GB SSD, 256MB RAM = 6,800 vouchers
    4GB SSD, 512MB RAM = 8,000 vouchers (or 80,000 worth of groceries!)

    I think I'll get one to try out. I'm thinking of using it for ePortal access for wireless registration.

    We are now looking at rolling them out. Still in the planning stages though.

    any chance you could post a how to of this? i'v been wrestling with theese eeepc's trying to get easylink to work and so far nothing has worked. i'v managed to get ie6 and 5.5 on but the webfolders stuff must be absent from the linux versions as the same error keeps coming up.

    Konqueror (the file manager) should have webdav built in.
    just go to webdav://adress

    Gnome can do WebDav out of the box but you'll need to do WebDav over HTTPS so whatever secure option it gives you should be the one.
