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.
