A black version (same specs, same price) is out now, FWIW.

That's old news tongue.gif I already mentioned that I got the black model over a week ago. Unfortunately it seems that there's a possibility that the black models are a newer batch which doesn't have the spare mini-pcie slot

Is there a reason NewEgg only just started listing the black ones, or did I miss that too, and they were there all along?

I got my EEE today. I've been playing with the OS more than giving it a full functionality review and photographing it. My roommate is considering getting one to replace his dieing laptop, and is fairly impressed with it, and playing with it a bunch.

I've not heard of any US models lacking the empty Mini-PCIe port, however all UK black models, and some newer UK white models have been reported to lack that slot. If you're in store and can look before buying, if the second character of the serial is a 'B' it lacks an extra mini-PCIe slot.

They just now were released, a few places had pre-orders, but not NewEgg.

I got mine a few days ago, I like it a lot! It's exactly what I needed for doing Arduino programming, wordprocessing, spreadsheet, IM, email, webbrowsing on the go. Sad to part with my C3100, but I'm glad I made the change.

I've got one for my sister yesterday. Now playing with it and doing some fine-tuning. So far I am so happy about this beast. smile.gif

I've installed a very useful package called "lazyeeepc", which includes the following enhancement of the original OS:

Some highlights:
1) New user interface and desktop functionality
2) Real Player 9 decoder for RMVB playback
3) New super-user file manager
4) Synaptic for apt-get install debian packages!
5) Skype 2.0 with video suppport!

Even though the page is in Chinese, just download the tarball extract it, execute the python script there, and choose everything to install.

Here is a screenshot.
Now I begin to feel no need to install other distros. After installing the lazyeeepc package, I can apt-get install all i386 debian packages just like in Debian and Ubuntu. And running in full desktop mode I get a full KDE environment which can do pretty much the same thing as in other distros.

Now replying using Eee PC with Firefox.

This is a really gorgeous machine...

But still it cannot replace my Z as I want a truly pocketable convertible (laptop <-> tablet) device for me to use on the go. laugh.gif

ZDevil,
Could you please check and see what version of Firefox is on the Eee?
I'm running 1.5 now and it would be nice if all my extensions would work.

Thanks,
Doug

ZDevil, just be careful about what Debian apps you install, from what I read, not all will work well with eee as Xandros modded distro on eee, is not 100% Debian compatible....

Just found this one (the 1st google hit ...): http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=875
Looks very informative and useful!

I got one of the first black E's from NewEgg and love it. I am also glad someone mentioned www.eeeuser.com as that seems to be the main English forum right now, LOTS of good information on there.

I agree that there really isn't any hurry on adding other linux variants as the E comes with pretty much everything needed for the average user, and with the addition of a few repositories more can be easily added.

So far all I have done is upgraded to a gig of ram, enabled the menu button in easy mode, and installed newer wi-fi drivers to support PEAP so I can use it at work. As I mentioned in another post, my poor Z hasn't been turned on since.

according to engadget the Nanobook is going to debut at US$400 so it will be interesting to see whether we get a whole slew of ultraportables and thin clients!
