The folks over at Tweak Twon installed Windows Vista Ultimate on the new Eee PC 1000H with Lite-On’s Blu-ray USB 2.0 drive to see if Vista will install on the new Atom 1.6GHz Eee. Play the video, will you?
Important note – After we installed all drivers and latest Windows updates, we re-ran the performance index and got a new score of 2.7 compared to 1.0. The graphics component score is now 4.0 with the gaming graphics component now scoring 2.7 – the other component scores are the same as the fresh install.
The actual real-world experience of Vista on the 1000H is surprisingly good – I expected it would be sluggish and slow but it’s actually quite smooth and that’s with ReadyBoost enabled we noted a slight improvement again. Keep in mind this is the Eee 80GB HDD version, the Eee PC 1000 with 40GB SSD should run even smoother.
