We’ve already seen the MSI Wind and the Eee PC 1000H running Windows Vista. So it should come as no surprise that the Eee PC 901 is capable of running Microsoft’s latest and most resource-intensive consumer operating system. But it’s still nice to see it in action.

Jkkmobile installed Vista on his Eee PC 901, using the drivers available at the Asus support web site. He did find better drivers for the graphics and touchpad which helped enable the Vista Aero interface.

The Eee PC 901 got an overall Vista performance score of 2.7, which isn’t bad for a computer with 1GB of RAM and integrated graphics. Overall, Vista seems a bit zippier than I would expect.

  1. also, is it possible to run 4gbs of ram on the 10 inch model, still getting 4 hours of battery?

  2. odd question, but do you have a picture of both hands on the keyboard? I’m up in the air about getting a 901 or a 1000 right now. thanks.

    1. If you are a touch typist, spring for the 1000. I could never get used to the keyboard on my 701, but the 1000 keyboard is almost full size. Believe me, the 901 keyboard is smaller than you think it is. It’s TINY.
