Just picked this up from newegg.com: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220369 Asus EEE PC 1000, Intel Atom 10.0" Wide SVGA 1GB Memory 40GB SSD. Also ordered a 2GB memory card, but it shipped separately and hasn't arrived yet. It seems this will be an easy upgrade in this model. Install memory, simple matter to remove the back plate with a screw driver, then F2 to get to BIOS, enable 2GB, and boot. Some of the older models of EEE required new kernel to see 2GB. We'll verify when the memory arrives today. I had planned on replacing the Xandros Linux with Ubuntu right away, but was put off by all the tweaking required to get the wireless going. One set of directions I found even suggested using a Windows wireless driver. So I think I will live with Xandros. I did d/l the packages required for "full desktop" switching. That's a nice option. So far so good. Wireless is flawless sync'ing up quite nicely with my neighbor's open Linksys and with my NetGear G wireless with WPA. I'm pretty satisfied I'll be able to surf from my couch while I recuperate after my prostatectomy next month. Still playing with functionality. Has a built in web cam. Took a self-portrait and edited it a bit (cut out the rest of the messy bathroom). Image was originally 640x480. I switch back and forth between Easy Mode and Full Desktop. Some things are "easier" in easy mode although I am a Linux guru. Firefox is curiously version 2. Browsing GT will take a bit of practice on the tight screen space. (This was posted from my desktop machine. I'll follow up with a post from the EEE.) Questions, comments? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
