Review: Asus Eee PC 1215
November 5, 2010
The Asus EeePC 1215NI’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 GHz is quite the upgrade from the standard single core 1.6 GHz. It certainly makes life on the go quite nice. Plus I’ve added Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10 to the mix.
iPad vs Windows Pad (Dell XT2)
October 8, 2010
We’re trying to standardize onto Ubuntu at work and we need hardware that works really, really well. One thing that I thought might be nice to have in the office was the Dell XT2 tablets. Not that I expect everyone to have one, but I thought there might be at least a handful of users that would appreciate them. Especially those at the office that use iPads (albeit there are only a couple). Yesterday, we got in the XT2 for evaluation and I excitedly started carrying it around with me (I’ve always, always, always wanted a tablet). I’ve not had time to put Ubuntu on the machine, but I thought that the comparison to the iPad might be interesting.
