Asus EEE 1005HA review Pt 2
As I posted earlier, My friend D got me a really nice Asus EEE 1005HA Netbook and up to this point I was really happy with it. Yesterday (2009/10/27) the power supply died. I search for power supply problems and I found a few but not enough to suggest an overall problem with this line of computers. What I did find was that the RMA process was filled with horror stories. So I went and ordered a replacement and we'll see how well that goes.
Other than that I really love working with this machine. I put Ubuntu Netbook Remix on an SD flash chip and everything works. On the Windows side I put Safari, Opera, Firefox, IE8, Open Office and FBReader. The machine is great for reading documents and I put a boat load on the machine (including a bunch of PDF and CHM files). I hadn't attempted to do any development work on the machine as I think the small screen and keyboard would have gotten in the way. The keyboard is fine for general use and use as a dumb terminal (I work on network equipment). I've only had it for a week and I already miss this machine. I've been toting it everywhere an that's what I miss most. So if I can resolve this power supply problem I'll be happy again. We'll see how that goes.
