It's been awhile since my last post, been busy working 100+ hour weeks at a startup.
Anyways, I picked up an ASUS eeePC 4G in Galaxy Black last week, along with 2GB of ram to juice it up. The default linux install didn't really impress me, so I've wiped it out and install eeexubuntu on it, which runs pretty well. So far I'm impressed by it, I did hack the keymaps so that shift was in the proper place on the keyboard. Next things I'm looking at doing are hardwiring two 32GB USB flash drives inside of it, and setting them up in software RAID 0, to expand storage from 4GB to 68GB or so. Might go completely crazy and drop 3 of them in and do RAID 5 ;) I'm also considering wiring up my ATT USBConnect card, however, it appears linux support is lacking, so if I go that route I'll have to see if I can load OSX onto it first. I'm not really very excited about the prospect of loading Windows onto the eee, but we'll see what happens.
I've also "overclocked" the processor from 633MHz to 900MHz, which is it's native speed. Apparently ASUS felt it was a good idea to downclock, I felt otherwise obviously. This can be done with the eee.ko kernel module via software, which also allows temperature monitoring and manual fan control.
