Asus EEE PC netbook - New OS ?

Recently found my old Asus EEE PC 901 with a version of ubuntu (gnome, I think) installed on it. I dont really like ubuntu and it cannot do much at all esspecally this version I have. I want to install a new OS on it because I am going on a trip this summer and I plan to download my pictures onto the EEE PC from my iphone every couple of days when my storage gets filled up. Does anyone know of a good OS for an EEE PC? I was thinking about installing chrome on it, but I heard the wifi doesn't work when people did that. I am not really worrying about the Wifi, as I dont use this computer anymore. i just want to make it so i can transfer pictures and videos from my iphone and free up space on it day by day

Any other suggestions are welcomed! Thanks

  1. I recommend Lubuntu, it's another version of Ubuntu but it's designed with a simple GUI and should run pretty fast on old systems.
  2. asus k8v-vm video card drive

    lubuntu is good
  4. Hmm will check out lubuntu. Is it compatible with iOS devises, fairly easily? preferably with download anything extra? Like I said, I just want to transfer pictures and videos from my iphone to the EEE pc.

    And what do you mean "asus k8v-vm video card drive" - should I get the drivers for this so the wifi will work? is that what you mean?
  5. That Asus comes original with XP and Linux. It will handle a bigger windows 7 starter (or other X86/32bits version of seven) nicely. Don´t you have a external USB 2.5" hard disk for storage?
