The EeePC900 Unboxing Gallery May 5, 2008Posted by reverseengineer in Hardware, Pics.
Nothing sweeter than unboxing a new toy (well, I can think of a couple of other sweeter things, but never mind that). Here we go:
The box itself.
I received the one with Windows XP pre-installed. It comes with just a 12gb SSD. The Linux version comes with 20gb, for the same price. The rationale is, with the WinXP version you buy a licensed copy of Windows XP, which is apparently worth 8gb these days. Linux is free and open source, so you get back the 8gb in kind.
Boo! It’s the EeePC900 in its body bag.
The stuff inside the box. Yum.
The goodies, all laid out on the table. Windows product identifier on the lower right corner.
Mr. 900 says Hi!
The big-@$$ screen, with the in-box el cheapo screen protector. Please remove immediately.
The bonafide credentials.
Quarter-turn to the right please!
Now to the left…
Now face front and smile for the camera! Flash those pearly whites! Nice teeth keys you got there. Look familiar too. (Note the multi-touch instructions on the larger trackpad.)
Now turn around and let’s see that behind! Nice sticker you got there on the left cheek. (Actually, I’m dying to open the panel and see if this one’s got an extra slot, but there’s a sticker covering one of the screws. Sigh.)
Now for a look at your privates. Hmm. 4400mAh only? Tsk. Tsk.
Power brick? Where’s that sexy little adaptor with the prongs we used to know? Hmph.
Finally, the pouch. (Frankly, ugh. It’s a grayish chamois-felt-suede something that’ll get dirty two seconds after you take from its plastic bag. Then goes linty all over you after a day. What’s wrong with classic black neoprene?)
That’s it for the unboxing. Some comparative side-by-side pics with the 701 soon, plus some first impressions tomorrow. Thanks for watching.
