    So it finally arrived today after a week and a half. I'm actually on it right now! :rofl:

    I've spent some time tweaking it and was wondering; there is an Internet Explorer icon and a Bluetooth icon on the desktop that aren't shortcuts. How do I delete them without messing anything up?

    Love the multi touch controls by the way :big grin:

    I don't know who potroast is, but I already noticed CodeX is pretty annoying and a troll in the Mac Shack AND even here.


    nucklear, which model did you get? I might consider getting one of these netbooks and do a hackintosh. Can't go wrong, specially with those prices.

    I got the 1000h model with the 160gb hard drive. If you
    read some reviews for it on NewEgg they basically tell it all. The hard drive is partitioned for some reason into two. Also I highly recomend getting the 2gb ram upgrade since it's cheap and really easy to install (I however found out I didn't think to bring a screwdriver to college so I had to use the knife on my friends Swiss army knire. It didn't have a screwdriver...). There definately worth the money and there extremely portable, hense the reason I got it, so taking it to class will be a breeze. Also it runs all the programs I want it to. Just got to get rid of all that blotware.
    Also the right shift is anoying but you get used to it. And often when I'm typing I accidently hit the touchpad.
    Got rid of the internet explorer icon and then used regedit to get rid of the bluetooth icon.

    The fact that you consider CodeX a troll proves by itself that you don't know potroast. At least CodeX participates in actual discussion -- potroast just told everyone else how fucking stupid they were for not seeing that he was completely and inarguably correct in all situations.

    i.e. He was like me at my worst, in American Muscle, except he did it constantly. For the most part, I'm just an annoying little soft-handed liberal shithead now. ;)

    Just take a quick look over in the Shack and see what he's doing. Is that not being a troll?

    Sure, I guess you could say it is, but it's still pleasant by comparison.

    yeah, codex is a pest, but nowhere bear as big of a dick that pothead was/is. He's much easier to ignore too since he doesn't seem to know as much.

    I have the Eee PC 4G, I have it booting from the SD card reader to a linux distro(backtrack)Mostly just use it to crack WEP/WPA keys, and when I travel. I kept the windows xp on there, figured free serial key, and I used it to stream netflix to my tv, before i built a mediabox. Now the only reason i boot to windows is to Im while watching a movie. But its served its time and for only $400, its still good travel pc. Asus is coming out with some sweeter models by q4 of this year, and probably q2 of next year. Gadgets.. usa is finally getting the sweet asian influeced devices of smaller and efficient./

    I miss some of the stuff in Japan, like the beer vending machines :bowdown: and for you smokers, they still have cigarette vending machines out there too. You can't walk more than 100 yards without running into a vending machine of some sort, they're everywhere.

    As long as they don't look like Domo-Kun, I could probably manage.
