View Full Version : [wubi] [wubi] on a netbook, battery and performance

October 22nd, 2011, 10:14 AM

I plan to buy an Asus Eee PC 1215B netbook with a preinstalled windows 7 and then install Ubuntu 11.10 using wubi. So I want to ask you for any first-hand experience with this combination. How's battery life compared with Windows 7 or with Ubuntu installed from scratch? And how's performance? Is any drop in speed observable in daily tasks (internet browsing etc.)?

See this thread (refers to 11.04): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1749630

According to Ubuntu Friendly it only gets a 1-star rating on 11.10:

There may be some workarounds to help with those problems e.g. suspend, but basically there will be some effort.

Here are asus computers rated 3 stars or more on 11.10: http://friendly.ubuntu.com/?desktops=on&laptops=on&stars=3&release=4&popularity=any&term=asus
