Updates of my Asus Eee PC

Here are some updates of my Asus Eee PC.

Well, first of all, as expected, it is very easy to use. Linux is serving me pretty well so far!

Also, very portable. I hardly realised that I’ve got it in my bag. In between classes (or in the classes 😛 ), I just pop out the Asus Eee PC, connect to the on-campus wireless network, and voilà, I’m on the web.

CFD Trading on my Asus Eee PC was okay. I’d prefer to use my standard 15.4″ laptop with external monitor, but when I don’t have access to the mentioned gadgets, Asus Eee PC has become a life saviour.

Running my online trading platform, is it slow? Surprisingly, no.

Just that, hardware-wise, I have to say, the standard 512MB RAM can be rather limiting. Running multiple programs at the same time can be frustrating. Of course, I can’t upgrade my RAM due to the fact that if I open the RAM bay, I’ll void the warranty. WTF Asus!!!

Another thing, the trackpad. My goodness, a nightmare! Not because it is small. The size is fine. Just that, there’s a bit of a problem with using the double-tapping feature. Quite a number of times, the trackpad won’t register that you have just double-tapped. So, I opted for the wireless notebook mouse instead. Much handier.

Battery life, not so bad. I watched a 1-hour-40-minute movie and by the end of the movie, the battery meter records 30% battery life left.

So, that’s all for now. I might share some tips and tricks on Asus EeePC later on.

  1. haha that sounds rather nice, isnt it?

    I dont worry much about doing works, most of the time I use the inspiron at home of course. But at university area, i used to use university comps but there are not always available and of course, not with my fav software either therefore, portability is the main issue.

    I havent looked at the its price here in London, but Im sure it wont be that expensive (I noticed one in the one of the local comp store but failed to take note the price :D)

    portable, always better for busy students 😉

  2. It is nice actually 🙂

    Portability is always best, especially around campus where you need to get from one end of the university to the other end in 5 minutes! Hehe.

    Do let me know how much it costs in the UK when you find out.

  3. gotto give and take some ya? 🙂 but all in all.. looks like a good investment there..

  4. Yup, definitely 🙂
