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
Well...will I still be able to open up the 4g surf and install my RAM upgrade?
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.
