    Default Asus EEE PC users!!

    I just bought an EEE PC 1000, with Windoze and the 80gb hard disk. Looking forward to getting it, it is actually the first entirely new computer system I have ever bought!

    Anyone else have it or want to hear about what it's like when I get it?

    I'm looking at these at the moment. I think i'm going to buy an Advent 4211 which is a re-badged MSI Wind. How much is a eee 1000 with windows anyway, don't think i've seen one.

    Every review I've read says the EEE PC 1000 is much better than the Wind. It isn't a poxy 8gb flash memory on a 7-inch screen like RB's sisters'.

    Send 350 to eBuyer and they'll get you an EEE 1000 with a new Intel Atom 1.6ghz, 10-inch screen, Windows XP PoS3, 80gb HDD and 1gb RAM as standard that will upgrade to 2gb. The battery is ideal for its intended use as an electronic note book at college, it can last 6 - 8 hours without needing a recharge. It is smaller than most other laptops, but it's heavier than a Wind, although I wouldn't buy a Wind because it has a sillier name... "I've got Wind!"/"I've got Es!"

    I made this thread in this section because I don't intend to use it for gaming, although the graphics memory eats into the RAM, so I will definitely upgrade and try

    The battary is the only bad thing about the Wind but for the 70 can buy another one or an external battery charger pack thing.

    Anyway i'm getting the Advent 4211 which is a crap name but not bad. Same specs for 70 less.

    It's here and it#'s really, really good. Solid build quality, only thing is a lack of a CD drive so if I want to install any games I have to somehow make ISOs of them...

    See, if you'd bought a MacBook Air you could've done it wirelessly via any other PC or Mac

    Nah, it's good, I have an external hard disk. Upgraded the RAM to 2gb second day I had it. Runs GTAIII superbly, NFS MW lags quite a bit, Midtown Madness II is fine on fairly high settings, and Hitman 2 and Contracts are fine. Feels like it will last for about a decade, which is what I would like it to do
