The Winbook XP5

Posted by susabelle at 8:02 AM on October 29, 2009

I’ve had a few requests for a picture of the Winbook XP5 from my last post. I was unable to find one online anywhere, at least, not with any detail. So, I took a couple of pictures. If you click on them, they will take you to a bigger shot.

The measurements are about 10″ wide, 9″ deep, and 2″ thick. The entire panel for the screen is about 8″ tall. The first picture shows the unit itself, the second picture is a closeup of the error I’m getting when I boot. Still haven’t had luck finding or making a floppy install. Yet. Contemplating replacement of hard drive first anyway, as 814 mb is just too small for much useful in the long term.

The fun continues. I know what I’m going to be doing all weekend!
