Supported Netbooks

As several people in this forum reported full AROS compatibility with the Acer One 110/150 L, I would like to continue the Netbook discussion & collect info about (almost) fully supported Netbooks. For me that means that correct graphics support & resolution + Ethernet aree included, Wifi and webcam could whait for future drivers

My start entry after an install yesterday night:

The Hercules eCafé EC-900. Equipped with a 32GB SSD. Okay, it's an older one, but it is very similar to the EeePC 901 and everthing works under Aros, except of Wifi and camera (not testeted - is there an application for it?). Performance: Nice

A review or list of netbooks, with details about the supported features is a good idea.

But perhaps it can wait, since wifi is due out soon.

Also, would like to see supported notebooks too.

Some other details like the weight, screen size, and processor speed, would be good to compare too.

Good idea to collect it in one thread. I agree with cavemann about including laptops.

It would be good if people could post what graphics & sound drivers they're using. I guess most netbooks are Intel integrated stuff, but nice to know.

Also, if you could post the wi-fi chipset, then we can retrospectively work out whether wi-fi is likely to work or not, even if new drivers are added after the initial bounty is complete.

Let's not forget about the Hardware-Compatibility-List on WikiBooks maintained by jeffrey11138.

Anyway this thread might be a start to collect information, then Jeffrey or others can order the useful and add on WikiBooks...

Yup, add this stuff to HCL - we need to keep it in one place! :)

The eCafe is aka Mitac Mistation or Dreambook Light (8,9" Display, very small and light with around 1 KG & the typical 1st gen Atom Netbook hardware). Sound & Ethernet worked, Wifi seemed to be from Realtek (Windows driver RT2860). But overall, despite a SSD, the system seemed not very fast, for whatever reason.

Meanwhile, I am also trying Aros on the almost Netbook-like Thinkpad X41 Tablet. It runs much faster, but Ethernet is not working. Sound is great. I would very much prefer this one if there would be a suitable wireless driver out soon - Aros fits great to the 12" 1024x768 screen and the classic Thinkpad look
