Review: Tiny Asus Eee packs a big punch

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 67.38.22.44] on January 12, 2008 03:06 PM
I've been using my eee pc since late November. I am puzzled by the problems others seem to be having with wireless. I have not encountered any issues. What has really sold me on the eee pc is the fact that I can run my Verizon Wireless Broadband USB modem out of the box (you do have to set it up as a modem via a walk-through in Xandros' network wizard). Funny enough--I plugged it into my work laptop (XP) and Windows choked on it and threw up several BSODs. A system restore fixed the issue, but I was reminded--again--of why I prefer Linux.
