"Before even taking the sticker off the screen, the stock 1-GB memory was replaced with the new stick. I also plugged in the microscopic Logitech receiver and put the included batteries into the mouse.

"I booted into Windows XP just to make sure that the thing would power up and then it was off to its big brother, my ASUS X83-VM laptop, to set things up for the installation. Soon, Jaunty Jackalope 9.04, via Eeebuntu would be running on the new Netbook.

"Portability is the overriding objective of the eeePC 1000HE. I can say that with Eeebuntu, it definitely measures up to that statement.

"The little machine has a 10-inch LCD backlit screen with 1024 X 600 resolution. It runs on the Atom N280 chip and a 130-GB SATA hard drive. The power brick is equally small and measures about 2" X 2" X 4". WiFi and Bluetooth are built in. The sharp-looking deep blue Netbook also has three USB ports, a VGA monitor port, a 10/100 wired Ethernet connection, and an SD card slot."
