  • Snappy Windows 7 installation

    Just finished installing Windows 7 on an ASUS 1000HE netbook. 23 minutes from inserting the install DVD to first boot into finished OS. While I use this netbook for a week with Win7, a reinstall was necessary because I “found” an SSD disk, 64GB. I want the solid state disk instead of the built in 160GB...

  • Meetings and email

    Here’s a look at the summary of application usage on my netbook (1000HE) this morning between 7:00am and noon.

  • Size matters

  • Netbook or Notebook?

    I can tell you, I love Windows 7 on the ASUS 1000HE . I mentioned it already? All this rah rah about netbooks are netbook and not notebooks and you only use them for web surfing. Windows 7 (Win7) and the 1000HE make all the difference. At least for me. Over lunch I installed Office 2007 . Yes, the full...

  • Netbook memory upgrade

    Just upgraded the 1000HE from ASUS from 1GB to 2GB. No obvious difference in Win7 performance. Apps seem to run faster now. I just had to install Office 2007. Runs very well with the built-in 1GB but feels snappier with 2GB. TaskMgr still shows only 700MB used. Am I old fashioned? A netbook is a netbook...

  • Netbook and Windows 7
