    Default Issue with EEE PC 4G!!

    I am buying this model specifically for Backtrack and small WinXP installation.

    Which one is most compatible with BT The 4G Surf, or the Non-Surf?

    you really need to read the eee wiki

    They are the same computer, except the 4g surf has a smaller battery & doesnt have the webcam. Also some versions of the surf do not have a ram access door.

    But as far as BT compatibility goes, they are the same

    I have the 4 gig non surf and its easy to open the door and switch the ram.

    There's no difference in the wireless chipset either?

    I have a 4g non surf. Everything (mostly) runs fine with BT3. The only consistent problem i have is with battery reporting, but I think this is independent of model of eee.

    BT3 correctly reports the cpu as underclocked to ~650 MHz and recognizes all 2Gigs of ram added to the system.
