EEE Pc 901 Continued

Work up early to ensure I didn't miss the delivery guy so I could give my new toy a go as soon as I got it... but as per usual, I had to wait because he took forever to get here (ok... it was just after 10am, but when you wake up at 7.30 on a Saturday because the delivery is anytime between 8am and 6pm every minute seems to take forever)

Unpacked the EEE from its box and went ahead and carried out the installation tasks required, spent the next hour removing all of the dross thats installed by default, and then go around to Eve.

Im happy to say, that Eve works, I wouldnt say it was brilliant (the smaller screen makes everything very cramped, and when youre out in space, theres a noticable framerate drop) but it does mean that if push comes to shove, I've now got a fully mobile eve client that I can hold in the palm of my hand, so I can log in, change skills, maybe do some missions (not tried yet) but definately do travelling around, trading and mining.

Theres a photo comparison above of my main laptop (HP dv9000) vs the EEE 901 so you can see just how small it is... that tiny 10" screen has almost the same resoultion as my office laptop from work (1024x600 vs 1024x768) and although its small and cramped, everything is very visible.

That's actually pretty cool. And as you say, using it more in terms of logistics rather than actual game play makes more sens.

Man is that tiny or what!

Interesting to see the 900 manages it... The 1000 would no doubt help with the screen resolution though...

Is that running XP, or linux?

It's XP - couldn't get the Linux version anywhere in the UK, they were just too popular.
