Peppermint 9 (Respin 2) on Asus 1005pe
« on: April 26, 2019, 10:21:41 pm »
Recently reformatted and put Peppermint 9 (respin 2) on my Asus 1005pe netbook with no major issues found so far.  Only the Fn keys for volume don't seem to be working, but I've already posted about that elsewhere.  Everything else seems to be running perfectly.  I've had Peppermint on this as a dual boot with Windoze 7 since Peppermint 6, but finally decided to scrap Win 7 and go strictly with Linux since the end of life is coming up soon for Windoze.  I did upgrade the memory to 2 Gig and the hard drive to a Samsung SSD 840 - probably too nice of a SSD for this little netbook, but it's pretty snappy and boots faster than my work desktop (Dell XPS 8700, i7-4770, with 1GB mechanical HD running Win 7).  It's about the only thing the netbook can do faster!

I had a string of ASUS and Acer netbooks for a while .. very handy form factor they were too for portability :)

I guess they're still going with the likes of the Lenovo Ideapad 100s-11IBY (one of which I own) .. though they now tend to be 32bit UEFI which is a pain .. but I still find the form factor handy.
