Which Linux versions?[edit]

The table could use a bit of clarification. What does 'Linux' mean? That it was available with Linux, or that it was compatible with? I assume the former.

So, there are three different kinds of text in the green boxes: 1) Xandros running KDE and IceWM 2) Xandros 3) Yes

Are those different? If it was "Xandros running KDE and IceWM" all along, then I suggest that the boxes all should be changed into 'Yes', and then explain elsewhere, the details. Or change them all into "Xandros" or whatever fits.

What is "Canonical"? This word is capitalized and occurs exactly ONE time, and that occurrence is in the Linux section. So, what is it? N0w8st8s (talk) 17:19, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
It means shipped with Linux. You can run Linux on any of them. After all they're basically just PCs. None of the hardware in them is exotic to be not supported by mainstream operating systems for x86-based computers. --92.72.252.128 (talk) 13:16, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Release dates[edit]

It could be nice if also release dates, possibly US release dates to consistent, were stated in the table. 213.165.179.229 (talk) 08:05, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Linux on Asus EeePC 1215P : full and quick success ![edit]

In October 2011 for 300€ I bought online in Germany Asus EeePC 1215P (2 + 320 GB , 1366x768 12" display) , without MS-Windows. In 2 hours I self-installed Ubuntu without need of external optical drive, it runs out-of-the-box !!  :-)

The Linux OpenSuSE 11.4 with Gnome installed by the seller (on my request, his advice was Ubuntu) works also, but the graphical user interface happens to be sometimes slow when I'm logged in as a certain user ID, a strange behavior ... but I prefer too much the SuSE experience, I will try to fix the problem :-)

OS Support — Windows Embedded 7[edit]

Windows Embedded 7 in installable on the first EEE-pc and run fine, with wifi support. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.91.192.120 (talk) 20:50, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Windows 7 Also works on the EeePC 1000H - I know because I am running it now... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.194.213.86 (talk) 04:26, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Mini PCIe slot vs. FLASH_CON[edit]

The article is wrong when it states that in general there are 2 Mini PCIe slots, one only accepting special Asus SSD cards (and on another occasion says that the SSD card connects to Mini PCIe). The slot that card connects to is (eletrically) NOT a Mini PCIe slot, but an Asus-propietary "FLASH_CON" slot. MiniPCIe cards won't work in that slot, as Asus' SSD cards won't work in a standard Mini PCIe slot.--82.135.32.38 (talk) 17:29, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

value of "Display1_DownScalingSupported"[edit]

... that phrase need a bit more explanation. I present form it is meaningless.

Not supporting full VGA capabilities under Xandros?[edit]

Now, assuming that's the cut-down flavour of Linux that came pre-installed on the 4GB 701, I think this might be inaccurate. I pulled one from the junk pile at work (to use as a cheap and hackish NAS with a bunch of existing external USB drives), whose internal display proved to be half smashed. Knowing very little about the machines, I plugged it into a spare SXGA monitor, fired it up, and it came up in 1280x1024 (32bit!) mode straight away, showing a cropped-off portion of that on (what was still visible of) the internal display, somewhat like having a "virtual desktop" mode. It was still mirrored, yes, but the external display wasn't limited to the 800x480 of the internal, so I think the statement as it stands is a bit misleading. It also allowed me to switch to running only the external screen to save from having the internal one sitting there simply showing the backlight shining through a load of ugly LCD leakage...

Also the various programs that defaulted to full screen (Tuxpaint, Frozen Bubble, the video player and a few others) seemed to run at 800x600 (1024x768?)... I think. I didn't check what the monitor thought it was running at, but it certainly seemed higher rez than 640x480 without being full SXGA, or having a significantly stretched aspect. 193.63.174.115 (talk) 10:41, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Other models?[edit]

I've come across several Eee PCs of the model 1011px. They have a 4400mAh battery, come with an accessible stick of 1GB DDR3 RAM, and an Atom N455 CPU. Soupisgoodfood (talk) 18:58, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
