Hey, have you all seen eeepc right now? I come from Germany and it is just brand new here you cannot even get one because all stores are sold out and you have to wait at least a month to get one. Its a supertiny "notebook" 900 mhz 7" display 4-16G flashdisk and so on. And its only 300€ that's very very cheap. I want to try it because I think its so sweet espacially you can take it easily everywhere and do some programming outside Smile has anyone some experience yet with this? Is it as good as they describe it? Because I really like to have one but can't Sad

Hi yes I've seen one of my colleagues at university with one. They look cool ^^ Smile. Though they have quite a small harddisk...

Nevertheless I'd probably spend a bit more for a uber laptop or another desktop PC Wink.

the display is very little, but this machine can be used as a cheap tiny server or a mp3 reader...

Yes small flashdrive but you can extend it by using an sd-card or external HD or something like that.
I guess its just a thing you want but in half a year you will not even use it anymore.
Well hopefully its like sleepsleep said and acer does a good job and there is some advantage for the consumer so I can finaly afford such a thing for 99$ or € or so Laughing

to be very frank, unless ur fingers are tiny (ladies' fingers ok) , otherwise,
skip this EEE.

they have tested to run windows xp, i guess 98 & DOS should be no problem

it comes with 512 MB DDR2, i guess, it is comfortable if running only Windows XP. i still haven't got time to install XP on it, will let you know more after i did it.

and to be very frank also,
the eee pc xandros interface got very huge potential to replace windows.

i let my friend who never use linux try it, it seems he is able to navigate around, turning the wifi and so on. and he likes it!!!

hey!, i have some "easy" examples for FASM installed in a fabolous """ASUS EEE PC""", with linux!

No WinXP installed, just the usual Linux...

SHELL 32BIT mode: HELLO WORLD , Displaying integer calculation , Char list , and also 1000 PRIME NUMBERS calculation , and also some more very very small programs!

Linux has a DOS 32 BIT mode named """SHELL mode""" or """BASH mode""", using INT 0x80

So, feel free to try my "easy" examples for """ASUS EEE PC""", absolutly all for FASM...

I got DexOS to run on a eee pc, without any problems Cool.
Also bogdanontanu got sol_OS, to run too.
The only problems, from a OS Dev's point of view is that so far we have only got it to use vesa2 640*480 32bpp
Here are some (bad ) photos:

Some more photos here:

But so far it seem very standard :)

PS: @edfed, Dos will run fine on this laptop.

All i can say is in my family, i could not get anyone to use linux, but since my girl friend got this, 5 members of my family have bought or are going to get one, once the local PCworld as them back in stock, no one who has used it, as not said they must have one.
On fast boot it boot so fast and the program work so well, the wifi works at the bottom of the garden, and you can take it anywhere, its a great piece of kit.

i remembered just 2 or 3 weeks ago, i stocked a pink dell inspiron 1420, had a hard time to sell it out.

most people claim that color too sissy, male almost reject it instantly if you told them u got pink color only, female doesn't like that color too, some is okay, but they prefer color like yellow, blue, red & black.

some want green too, but pink is a no no here. at least from my experience.
