PostSubject: Thinking of a new toy   Thu Apr 15, 2010 9:26 am

I was thinking of getting a netbook, to be specific an Asus.

Then try out stuff like Linux (this time the primary OS) and maybe Chrome OS when it`s out.
Upgrade the ram to say 4GB, etc.

This will be my companion besides my smartphones.

What do you guys think? Or should I just sttick to Windows 7?
Cause the Atom isn`t really that good even with 7.

Try the Linux route using CROSSOVER 7 to install win apps on the linux enviroment. Cool I havent test how a virus will act in that enviroment, but I suspect it would work properly... Cool

Ah I see.... Will do if I get it...

Been quite sometime since I used Linux. Just love the no nonsense interface, with unlimited possibilities..

You must get it, the power it has is amazing. Limited by only the imagination

Though at the same time, I`m also considering an Ipad, but that`s strictly a toy and not meant for work...

But the main purpose I need a new toy is to keep me entertained.

lol the choice can be rather complicated

Forget all what I`ve mentioned. Aim now is the EEE Pad. This baby is around the size of teh Ipad, and the top of the line one runs on Intel C2D CULV.

I`m drooling lol
