Asus EeePC 1000
« on: January 05, 2020, 08:56:14 am »
This morning I installed Peppermint 10 Respin 32 Bit on my Asus EeePC 1000 Netbook:

Agreed with you having the 1000HD and mine the 1000.
When I purchased it I wanted a device to take with me everywhere, and was wary of moving parts hence why I went with the SSD version.
Downside is that for the money back then you got two SSDs... 8GB and 32GB.
It also came with a "Linux distro" in the form of Xandros. It soon got replaced with Linux Mint.

Heh! I bought mine out of contempt for "netbooks" and netbook owners   ;D

Netbooks were quite the thing, back then - trending - and everyone made them sound like the 'second coming.'

Sooo, the plan was... Target was selling EeePC 1000HD's $227.00 USD. I decided to buy one, keep all the original packaging - play with it for a week - make a video about what a useless POS it was - then, return it for a refund.

As it turned out, I liked it better than my $800.00 HP laptop. It was perfect for 'war driving', playing with it at lunch counters, taking quick notes, and so forth. The only reason I quit using it at Board Meeting was... a 'dickey pee pee' dude thing. It made me *feel* inadequate, when I was sitting at a table, surrounded by $2000.00 HP, Apple, and Dell machines.   LoL

I still use my EeePC for testing 32bit alphas, and goofing around. The battery is getting a little weak; and, I'm having a hard time finding a suitable replacement, at a decent price. If I can't come up with a workaround, I'll probably replace it with a 12-inch Dell Latitude E7240 i7 "ultrabook". Dell was selling E7240 i7 refurbs for $250-ish around Christmastime/Black Friday.

Review (picked at random): https://is.gd/rD6m20

In the meantime, they'll have to pry the EeePC out of my... well, you know  :)

Have fun!
