Eee PC Questions

1 – I’ve decided to upgrade the memory. What chip does the EeePC clamshell take?

2- Microsoft is pimping Windows 7 for netbooks. Anyone try this?

    Any brand DDR2 667 or DDR2 800, 2GB 200 pin SODIMM.


    The upgrade will remove the 1GB stick in the computer and replace it with the 2GB stick.

  2. Jeff the Baptist Says:

    Check the your model number’s relevant forum on eeeforums. There will be multiple people asking the memory question. There is a big debate about whether 667 or 800 is better. I put a this chip in my 1005hap. If you have 1005, then changing the battery is easy because there is a handy access door. If you have the 1008, then it is not because there isn’t.

    Haven’t tried Windows 7 as XP runs fine and some of the latest BIOS versions were reportedly running poorly under Win7 RC2.

    Loved XP. Hated Vista. So far I’m loving 7 (although, I’m also running 64bit)

    my coworker has windows 7 on his eee. works great. vista wouldn’t run on it, but 7 runs fine.

    turn off the fancy-shmancy eye-candy bullshit for more performance.

    If you go to it’ll scan your machine and give you the Crucial upgrade choices. You can use that information to see if there’s something at a better price somewhere else if you’re so inclined.

    Asus 1000HE with 2GB of RAM

    Vista Business ran smooth no problems

    Ran 7 beta since June then switched to released 7 Pro for the past 3 weeks no issues

    Personally I’d steer clear of Windows 7 until the first service pack comes out. I hear it’s ok, but then again, I’m really not happy with MS these days anyway.

    Are you not happy with Linux?

  8. SayUncle Says:

    Linux? I like my crap to be compatible.

  9. atrius Says:

    What is this “compatible” you speak of? Or rather, what are your compatibility concerns?

  10. SayUncle Says:

    Some apps i run cannot run on Linux.

  11. atrius Says:

    That could be a pain, may I ask what apps?

  12. SayUncle Says:

    Fulltilt, comes to mind. And I’m sure others. Others tend to have a work around.

  13. TNProgrammer Says:

    Windows 7 runs awesomely on my Acer Aspire One.

  14. Chuck Bridgeland Says:

    Check Kingston’s memory configurator: . Probably DDR2

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
