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. All of this is wrapped up into a nice little 12″ package. It won’t be setting any speed records with its Intel Atom processor, but having a dual core 1.8...

Quick Review: Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04

Eee: Installing Windows 7

Since Microsoft has been generous enough to share the Windows 7 RC with everyone, and because Jon has enjoyed it so much, I decided my Eee should be running Win7. Getting Windows 7 is fairly easy, download site and key available from Microsoft and Microsoft TechNet. Both have the same information, the former looks prettier, while the latter offers a more utilitarian experience. Either one will get you what you...
