As I said in the OS X on Asus Eee PC 1000HE troubleshooting article, I figured I’d go ahead and throw together a more traditional how-to to help out some folks who were interested in installing OS X on their Asus Eee PC 1000HE netbook. Now, it’s not exactly difficult, and this is little more than cobbling together work that others have done, so allow me to give credit where it’s due and list those sources before we get into the actual steps. Just keep in mind that some things won’t work (yet).
Ok, this isn’t netbook or tablet computer or anything like that related, so sue me. A theoretical situation: you buy an Apple Aluminum Keyboard (because they’re cool) and aren’t using an Apple computer. How do you get it to actually work in Windows? You poked around on Google which turned up some good ideas, but either the files were old or the method didn’t work, so here’s how make your shiny (well, it’s really sort-of matte) new Apple Aluminum Keyboard work in Windows.
It’s no secret that I’m pretty happy with my Acer Aspire One netbook, but I did note in the review that it has received some pretty low marks where the SSD is concerned. Because they opted for a cheap, slow SSD, it can cause some performance problems for those who are managing a lot of content. For me, using it as a writing platform, it’s a non-issue. That isn’t the case for everyone, though.
So I’ve already done a preview and unboxing of this little netbook, but it’s time to get a little more in-depth with things now that I’ve had a chance to spend some time with it. For those who want the the general consensus and don’t want to wait until the end, here it is: it’s good! For the rest, I’ve spent the last week and a half using and evaluating the One and have some observations and numbers to share.
