Netbooks, particularly the Eee PC (duh), are great. You can take them everywhere, they’re relatively fast, and they’re good enough to allow you to finish your tasks without crashes. However, I’m not a big fan of their storage options. Either you get a really fast SSD that contains only around 32 GB of storage, or […]
Let’s say you want an Eee PC but you want to have bluetooth built-in. You’re not really into bluetooth dongles, and you want to hack your Eee. EeeUser member wacou has posted a guide to take the 1005HA apart safely. Check out the thread here.
Over at CES 2008, there are rumors (likely to be true) that Asus will be releasing an Eee model with 8.9 screens this 2008. Sure, they’re also including WiMax in the possible specs, but it’s the screen size and real estate that most Asus Eee users are interested in. From CNet, This year at CES […]

One of the things difficult to adjust with on the Asus Eee PC is the location of the right shift key. Sure, the keyboard is small, but pretty soon an Eee user would be able to adjust to the size. But the location of the shift key might prove to be difficult because the up […]
There are a lot of drawbacks when you choose a small device over a conventional-sized one. Well, actually you do have an option to get yourself a small but power-packed device, such as Fujitsu-branded subnotebooks. However, there is a big price to pay.
