Windows Vista on Eee PC 1000H - will it work? (video)

TweakTown tested whether the Asus Eee PC 1000H has enough power to run Windows Vista:
Windows XP is so yesterday... we couldn’t get really super downright excited about the new Eee PC 1000H until we installed Windows Vista Ultimate. So that's just what we tried to do...

With Lite-On’s Blu-ray USB 2.0 drive in hand from a previous review, we set about trying to see if Vista will install on the new Atom 1.6GHz Eee. Play the video, will you? 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.
