A Museum Item: the Asus Eee PC 901

Filed under

How nostalgic! Today I powered on my wife's Asus Eee PC 901. That is a tiny 8.9 inch netbook that came with 1Gb RAM, 20Gb SSD, and Linux pre-installed. My wife kept it at her mother's house, but brought it back two weeks ago.

This thingie is especial for me because I myself was introduced to Linux by an Asus Eee PC. It was the Eee PC 900 that I bought in Amazon in 2009. After heavy use, it collapsed. Both machines came with a modified version of Xandros.

As I played with the netbook today, I discovered that some of the keyboard keys are not working... maybe because my little nephew and niece have been playing with the poor computer.
