As reported yesterday, Tweaktown already got a new 10 inch Asus Eee PC 1000H in their labs. Now they have published a report about their attempt to install Windows Vista Ultimate instead of Windows XP on the Asus Eee PC 1000H - and it works well!
Quote: "Alright folks, we’re back again! Windows XP is so yesterday... we couldn’t get really super downright excited about the new Eee PC 1000H until we installed Windows Vista Ultimate. So that's just what we tried to do...
With Lite-On’s Blu-ray USB 2.0 drive in hand from a previous review, we set about trying to see if Vista will install on the new Atom 1.6GHz Eee. Play the video, will you? The actual real-world experience of Vista on the 1000H is surprisingly good – I expected it would be sluggish and slow but it’s actually quite smooth and that’s with ReadyBoost enabled we noted a slight improvement again. Keep in mind this is the Eee 80GB HDD version, the Eee PC 1000 with 40GB SSD should run even smoother."
