So I was looking at BestBuy today, and they do indeed have the Asus EeePC 900A for only $200. There are two downsides of course: it comes with a solid state drive, and a shitty linux OS. I don’t want to use Linux, but I know that putting XP on a SSD could cause problems because of limited write cycles and the eventual death of flash technology.
So I am considering putting Windows Embed Standard; which is a componetized version of XP designed for modular devices and flash drives. Does anyone have any experience with this OS? Is there anything I should be aware of? Also, how hard would it be to install on this laptop?
