Asus’ Windows 7 upgrade program includes two Eee PCs

June 29, 2009 at 6:34 pm

Windows 7 UpgradeAsus has outlined its plans on how one goes about updating to Windows 7 free of charge, if you buy an eligible product from 26th June 2009 to 31st January 2010. The interesting thing is that whilst the list is dominated by Asus notebooks, it appears though a couple of Eee PC netbooks are included in the mix.

This includes the 11.6-inch Eee PC 1101HA that runs on Vista Home Premium as well as the Eee PC 1005HA that runs on either XP Pro or Vista Business. Personally, I didn’t even realise that other operating software was being planned apart from XP Home. However, with the number of markets these netbooks are being sold into, different SKUs exist in each. As far as I’m aware, both UK versions of the above Eee PCs will come with just XP Home so the upgrade program won’t really apply here. Windows 7 launches on October 22nd 2009.

    I just pre ordered an Asus 1005HA. I spoke with an Asus Technical Rep and he said that as long as the model is on the list, Asus will support the OS upgrade. The downside is that he said its only eligible for the Starter Edition. 🙁

    Don’t see the 1005HA with XP on the Asus Win/7 upgrade list. Am I missing someothing or was it deleted?
