I've been running Windows 7 Ultimate on my old eee 900A netbook for some time now. It runs great on a 16GB SSD. I've used it multiple times in my Calc 3 class this semester making 3D models in MAPLE, and it took it like a champ. It won't multitask heavy programs, but that's more of a single core processor problem than a memory issue. Currently it is running 1GB of RAM because I threw the 2GB stick I had in it into my other laptop, but even then with full Aero it runs perfectly. I don't understand why anyone would think that a more recent Atom couldn't do this?
Also, Windows 7 runs much faster than XP in my experience with the super low end netbooks. I got my dad one of the original 900MHz Celeron 1GB RAM eee 900's, and it runs extremely well with Windows 7. It can't run Aero because it's limited by the drivers, but you would be impressed with how optimized Windows 7 is even on such low end hardware.

I would be curious to see all that running hands on. It all sounds great in theory. I've used a few netbooks with XP and want to toss them out the window after 15 mins. I also can't ever adjust to the mini keyboard. I spend more time correcting myself than I do actually typing.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

I can't wait for the Wind Pad, there could be dual boot with Win 7 and Android together and MAC OS X just like my wind netbook but lighter. what i want to know is the battery life......

also i still think if the wetab ever becomes available in the US it would be better than any of them because not only does it run the android designed for much lower than the atom 1.66 it also runs linux applications so you have both android and linux apps to choose from

many rumors are coming out that hp, dell, Eee pad, Wind pad and many more tablets are coming with much better specs compare to iPad… maybe those are not just rumors and many will do come out by end of this year or early next year… and the important thing is everybody is so happy that those (non-apple) tablets have so nice specs and camera options and usb ports and etc but till today the only tablet available is iPad… and everybody knows till the good tablets come out people have no other option but to buy iPad… and for today i guess iPad is rocking even the specs are low but still it is very cool thing to have right now… if other tablets are coming by end of this year or early next year i’m sure apple will bring their upgraded model of iPad which will take over the market… again !
and this will keep happening but that is future… right now we can enjoy our iPad which is sooo amazing i must say…

i have a 64GB iPad and am really enjoying it but really bought it because there wasn't another option in this game that compares and my house is full of Macs and i enjoy Mobile Me.
in the last 3 years i have owned 5 different netbooks. i just kept selling them and getting new ones cause they kept quickly getting better. my last 3 i had setup with a triple boot of W7 Ultimate, OS X 10.5, and Ubuntu and all 3 of them ran great on all 3 of these OS's. since it seems windows 7 is the main topic of discussion i wanted to say that with the 1.6GHz and 2GB of ram W7 ran with no problems for me and in fact ran just as well as XP did on them.
more ram would be a blessing on the iPad. i just checked mine in SB settings and i have 36MB left and nothing running with backgrounder. i find this low memory to be a constant for me and am tired of using the memory cleaning tool all the time to get back above 75MB free.
my hope is that one of these companies can replicate the touchscreen abilities that Apple has since i find that to be something that no other phone or device has been able to do and i have a LOT of cell phones.
i personally prefer The Android OS over the iPhone OS when put on the right device. i look forward to a full non phone based Android OS and hope that it is an option for me before the end of the year. i will have to wait and see what the reviews have to say.
i say reviews which is probably BS cause if i believed the reviews from sites i trust i would probably not be enjoying typing this on my iPad right now"i believe louisiana is the pelican state"

But "anything I want, it's a full OS" is about on par too
I am namely looking forward to a full featured firefox and just a UI that doesn't consist of a bunch of boxes. I say this, but I probably won't get one of these either. I have no need for one.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
