Needs more RAM
on August 13, 2014
This little computer (ASUS EeeBox EB1007P-B001F Desktop) works OK. The Windows 7 Pro operating system was mandatory to me for the Remote Desktop server it includes, but if they were going to put Windows 7 Pro on this little computer, they should at least have expanded the RAM to 4GB. Two gigabytes of RAM just isn't enough for this operating system. I gather one can expand RAM to 4GB, but it doesn't look like they made it easy to do. I have yet to find instructions on how to open this box to access the RAM slots, for example.
I didn't expect any kind of speed demon, of course, but at the moment this machine feels glacial and I'm looking for solutions to speed it up to a snail's pace.
The machine itself gives the impression of high quality, and it is very quiet. Decent little box, but you might be happier with something that has a little more oomph.
