About 6 Months ago, I picked up an Asus EEEpc 900 off of the internet geek site “Woot!“. For those that are not familiar with the EEEpc, it’s Asus’ bare-bones line. It’s a netbook with a Celeron M (pre Atom) processor and only a 4GB SSD. Now I have upgraded the SSD to 16GB so that I could put Windows 7 on it (which runs very well) and I have also installed a touch screen. The touch screen upgrade has been compared to putting spinners on a Yugo, but it makes it really easy to use while on the couch. Because of the extremely small hard drive and trying to get maximum portability, I decided to only install Google Chrome and a few utilities to keep the machine clean. Any spreadsheets, documents creation, and e-mail would be done in the ‘cloud’ as an experiment. Can I do it? Can I only do work in Google Apps? Is this really possible?
