I have been wondering how good the Asus Eee PC is. The small linux UMPC is certainly creating waves in the tech world as well as the MoLeNET community.
Lilian (one of the MoLeNET mentors) demonstrated one at the MoLeNET Online Conference last Friday and I was quite intrigued.
So you can imagine my surprise when the one I had ordered arrived today.
It was interesting to see how this small UMPC was going to work out.
It booted up fine and after a minimal setup process was ready to work. Already loaded with internet, office, media and other applications it is ready to go.
I tried a few things such as running a PowerPoint presentation and playing a video file.
It handled the few things I tried with ease.
I still need to try the internet applications, so it will be interesting to see how the Eee PC can be used to access our college VLE and other online services.
