Review: Asus Eee PC 1215

I’ve gotten my hands on a new netbook, this time is the Asus Eee PC 1215N. It comes with an Intel Atom 1.8 GHz (dual core), 2 GB of RAM, a 320 GB HD and an Nvidia Ion graphics chip.

Unfortunately for Linux, Windows 7 was coming out, so I wanted to try that out on the netbook. I like Windows 7, but it wasn’t designed specially for Netbooks; I find that it runs a lot of background...

Eee: Game On

Everyone knows the real reason anyone uses a computer is to play games (or at least a close second… but not everyone watches porn). With that in mind, here’s a few games that I have enjoyed investigating. Still haven’t got StarCraft to connect to Battle.net, so no fix to pass on there.
