Asus Eee PC 4G-X, Windows XP Unboxing Preview

Configuration and Bundled Software

A full licensed version of Windows XP Home Edition is installed on this Eee PC.  Amazingly, it boots in about 20 seconds flat, thanks to the machine's SSD drive.



All Eee PCs today currently are powered by an Intel Celeron M processor at 900MHz.  The machine is also built on Intel's 915GM Express chipset with integrated graphics. You won't be playing Crysis on this machine boys and girls, as it's obviously targeted as an ultraportable buisness-class workhorse.  Though you might be able to pull off some very low-end 3D fun with a bit of creativity and elbow grease.  Finally, we'll note that Asus went with the Atheros WiFi chipset on the Eee PC, which provide excellent 802.11g/b performance.  In fact, the Eee PC is one of the best machines in our lab, in terms of WiFi signal strength and performance, even versus full-sized notebooks from HP, Sony and others.


Microsoft's Windows Live messenger, photo gallery and email suite are pre-installed on the the machine for collaborative and social networking capability, in addition to Microsoft Works for word processing, spreadsheets and calendar functionality.
