When Katie McAwesome and I moved from the Orlando area, we originally lived in a hotel as we were looking for new digs (actually KMcA looked, and worked). In that whole time she used a Dell Mini 9 to do all her work. Surprisingly, it ran everything she did; web, word processing, e-mail, the whole works. I myself own an ASUS EEEpc 900A, that I use for casual web surfing and blogging. That machine is 100% on the cloud, as another experiment. I recently purchased KMcA a Dell Mini 10v so that she had a larger keyboard and screen to use. So now I have both the Dell Mini 9 and ASUS EEEpc 900A. Both of these machines are intel processors, Atom in the Mini, Celeron in the 900A.
Now the experiment. For the next week I will use both of these machines, the Mini 9 running OS X Leopard and the 900A running Windows 7. Looking at both, I’ll see what works, what doesn’t and which I prefer in the end. Because all you OS X Kool-Aid drinkers scare me.
