The small form computer was good for going on the internet and writing documents, and it could be taken anywhere. Inside the box the computer was partying like it was 1999, with a sub-Ghz Celeron processor and 4GB storage. But unlike previous mini-computer attempts, it turned out netbooks were capable of running Windows XP. Unlike the Fisher-Price simple version of Linux on the Asus Eee PC, having Windows XP gives netbooks all the functionalities of a standard PC, aiding their success."
