Has anyone played UO on an Eee PC?

    I'm intrigued by the Eee ultra-portable Asus. I know you can load Windows XP on it to replace the standard Linux OS, so I wondered if anyone here has played with it and tried to run the 2D client?

    In essence, it's a 900mhz Celeron with 512MB-1GB of RAM and only a flash drive for storage (which can be expanded in some models). I'm guessing it wouldn't run very well, but I'm a gadget geek and a UO player, so I just had to ask. [​IMG]

    Seems like the closest we may ever get to playing UO on a handheld!

    That system would run UO absolutely fine.

    I know someone that plays UO okay on a 166mhz monster of a laptop. I'm absolutely sure your Eee can handle it. [​IMG]

    Nice... I haven't tested UO on any older hardware in the last couple of years. I know I started playing on a Pentium 75mhz.

    I haven't bought the Eee yet, but I'm leaning towards it... even more if I can play UO. The low resolution on the screen definitely won't hinder my abilities to run 2D fullscreen either. [​IMG]
