im guessing that the xandros distro have been hardly updates vs what they shipped on the 701...

Asus/Xandros doesn't upgrade (so far) the applications like other Linux distros have done already. F.i.: you can upgrade Firefox to version 3 like published on the eeeuser.com, but I want do it "easy" with the add/remove software icon, or with the command apt-get.

I opened mine last night to install more RAM and noticed that ASUS didn't include the ZIF socket/connector so that you can't upgrade with a regular HD if you need in the future, only larger SSD.

I am interested to know how the 16GB SSD performs. Is it the slow SSD like those in the new 900 16GB?

1. Is there any report of dual boot Xandros/Ubuntu /Windows?
2. Does more RAM (2.GB) help much or not that much?

JKK, I have been looking forward to getting a Linux 901, so I was quite disturbed to hear your comments on the Linux version (versus the XP version).

Did you really find the battery life to be shorter in Linux than XP?

JKK said...

yes, I do. others have found it too:

It all depends how u use it. I would say that on web use with wifi the difference is still minimal.. maybe 30mins..
