  • Tested Asus EeePC T91(sa)

    Ok I picked up a used Asus EeePC T91(SA) touch screen with high expectations…I messed around with the installed XP Home with special embedded software for it. I also Installed Windows 7 Ultimate, and Ubuntu Remix. I wanted to try the Creative Xfi USB card… I got all the drivers to install correctly on all 3 platforms… I hooked up to my car speakers/amp… Well to make a long story short, ubuntu is too slow, Windows 7 has a tad too many recourses running, even running with minimum services, and finally reinstalled the XP that came with it… Quick, but once the USB is plugged in the takes over 50-100% of the CPU usage…I got the cracking issues resolved for the most part, but its too damn slow and this was while I wasn’t even driving! So its back the drawing boards, I think Ill pick up a shuttle barebones and throw in a e6400 cpu and one of the many 1GB sticks of ddr2 I have laying around…as well pick up a descent 5.1 PCI sound card & PCIX video card + descent touch screen…at least I can run some awesome games after a session of surfing here in Hawaii! :-P

    In conclusion, the ASUS EeePC T91 does not work well in my opinion.
    I forgot to mention I installed Centerfuse trial… It too was slow especially with USB Xfi.

    Unless someone has better experience with a non load intensive USB 5.1 Sound.. Im selling my T91 and getting the Ipad (not for car use)

    EEEPC skin covers changes the look and appearance of your device in just a seconds. Skins are easy to install and remove without leaving any sticky residue. Skins never get fade and are washable. I am very happy to make it in my life.

      Interesting how the T91 was slow for you. I had and EEEPC 2G Surf and it worked great. I ran EEEBuntu linux Base 3.0. It was essentially a very stripped down ubuntu developed for eeepc but works on other machines as well. There are multiple things you can do to speed up your OS. I personally think Windows 7 is awesome and you can do alot to it compared to XP. On my 2G surf I ran XBMC for my music and used a Wii remote through bluetooth connectivity to navigate my XBMC music and movies in my car. You will just have to get into moddifying your O/S and apps to fit your needs.
