Asus EeePc 1000HE running Windows 7

I just couldn’t help myself.  I had to install Windows 7 on the Netbook.  I upgraded the ram from 1G to 2G for just $25 from Amazon.  It took an hour or so to install.  No upgrade is allowed from XP to 7, so I had to do a clean install.  Not a big deal because I haven’t really started using it yet.

A couple of drivers were missing, but nothing serious.  I downloaded them from Asus and everything is back to normal.  My Microsoft Experience Index is now 2.3.  This is better than the Dell D610, which was a 1.0.  This means I can run Windows Aero, which the full transparency effects.

So far, so good.  I am pleased with everything about it.  Now, all I have to do is not lose it and not break it.  Oh, and I need to test out the video conferencing.  More to come.
