A tale of three devices

Well back home after a break !! Interestingly online on three different devices running different operating systems. Running

  • Windows XP
  • Mac OS running Leopard
  • Linux
well the XP experience on my reliable workhorse PC was reliable if a little slow. The Mac OS usual interesting experience. what was really intesting the ASUS EEPC running a version of linux.

Ive been using it for a while keyboards a little small but usable the flash driver boot upis lightening fast the screen is bright and integration of igoogle,google docs and firefox is as refreshing change . Is it thee device well nearly for some users !!But as I shout its not about the device stupid!!!

We are considering buying the ASUS for students to have at home as part of the CfP project as we can buy 600 of them for our money. Do you have any other ideas that are worth considering?

depends what you want they are a great device for humble opinion but they are not that easy to lock down according to more technical colleagues . Some have they aren't a real rich media device but I personally haven't given mine a real canning in this arena.
If your buying 600 bargain hard and maybe buy some SD cards for extra storage !!
