We’ve already seen that early builds of Windows 7 run pretty smoothly on netbooks with 1.6GHz Intel Atom processors including the MSI Wind U100, Asus Eee PC 1000H, and others. But what about an older machine like the Asus Eee PC 900 which sports a 900MHz Intel Celeron CPU?
It turns out Windows 7 runs reasonably well on the Eee PC 900 too. Blogger multimolti has even put together a tutorial explaining how to install Windows 7 on an Eee PC 900 using a USB flash drive (in case you don’t have a USB DVD drive).
While Windows 7 will run on this machine, it’s worth noting that the Eee PC 900 doesn’t seem to be capable of handling the Aero graphic interface. Of course, the computer probably runs faster with Aero shut off anyway, but it’s always fun to install eye candy just to impress your friends for a few minutes before you decide you actually need to be productive and turn off the unecessary graphics features.
You can check out a video of Windows 7 in action on the Eee PC 900 after the break.
