Monju is a netbook computer for portable presentations, email, browsing, writing, coding, and some data mining. It came with MS/Windows XP Home pre-installed. The netbook features an Intel Atom 1.6GHz CPU with 1GB of DDR2 memory and an 80GB hard drive. It includes an inbuilt SD card reader, 3 USB2 sockets, Wireless, Bluetooth, and a two finger TouchPad.

Ubuntu-Eee (8.04.01) was installed from USB (8 November 2008). The iso image was downloaded from Ubuntu-eee. It is now a dual boot system, keeping MS/Windows, though so far MS/Windows has not been used.

The system was purchased 8 November 2008 for $579 from Bing Lee. It was price marked $699, advertised as a November special at $599, and sold at Office Works for $649. An excellent netbook and fully featured when running Ubuntu-eee. Can easily handle running the Rattle data mining toolkit.
