Anyone using netbook or atom processor as host?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to run The Uniform Server on a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom N270 based system. I'm considering an ASUS EeeTop ETP1602C touch screen to run a web app. The system runs XP Home so I feel comfortable from an OS point of view, but I didn't know if there was anything about the N270 that would make Apache, PHP and MySQL not work or perform so poorly as to be unusable with Firefox in kiosk mode with light use of Javascript. The application is not particularly resource hungry, but I do change the PIP.ini to support more memory (128 Mb) and use MySQL PDO support.

 

Anyone had any experience using The Uniform Server on an Intel Atom based machine?

 

Thanks,

I have tested US on a quad core atom 1.6Ghz processor(cant remember exact name, sorry) using Windows Server 2003 32bit and found no problems with it.

Their 330 atom server is what I ordered, however it had 4 cores not 2.

Thanks for the response.

 

I suppose it should work, but the Atom N270 has a single core (2-threads) and the cheapo machine has XP. I guess since no one else has tired it, I'll give it a shot and let you all know.

 

Thanks again.

I actually post now from an Asus eeepc 901 Windows xpsp3. I have Uniform Server on the second 16gb ssd with apache and mysql installed as services. For just developing mode the Intel Atom N270 for me it is great.

I installed netbean(the php version, the best free IDE, suport for jQuery, etc) and Google Chrome(the best with its developer tools) and have no problems working on a ajax based project while some movie is playing in the background.

Thanks for the post! I'm just now setting up an Eee Top with the Uniform Server. I'll let everyone know how it goes. (I'm having to de-crapify the Eee Top now!)

 

I do my development on a Mac with Eclipse PDT and XDEBUG. I would like to deploy on the Eee Top.

 

I'll keep you posted.
