Yay! I just got my new ASUS EeePC Seashell Series netbook! I have given her the name "Ariel" since I like that name...and also, because she's just hot!!!
Here Ariel's specs:
Size: 12.1 in.
CPU: AMD Athlon Neo II 1.7 GHz
Memory: 2GB DDR3
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 4250
Hard Drive: 320GB SATA II
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
Battery Life: Up to 6 hours!
I'm installing Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition next to Windows 7 in order to have a dual boot system. This is totally aweseme! Why do I want to keep Windows? Well, to compile the Qt4 apps I work on to work well on other Windows 7 machines!!
I'm also installing Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition as my main installation. I'll install the Qt4 SDK and add stuff for development of PHP code, as well as add GIMP and Inkscape for my image editing and creation needs.
All I have to say about Ariel is that she is totally awesome. I mean, for $300 (without shipping), I get a hot netbook that is almost twice as powerful as my previous netbook for the same price. And it's got a bigger screen. This is so awesome!!!
Sorry Thumbelina (my previous netbook), but I've found someone else....
