I just picked up a netbook, Asus Eee to be exact. The arduino sketch pad wont let me choose a board...the menu never comes out. Does anyone have this issue? Am i screwed for using the netbook with the arduino?

At one time (couple years back) I managed to install the system on my EeePC 900A (this was likely version 12) - its since been wiped by a re-install of Xandros, but I bet if you switched out to something more modern (Ubuntu Net Remix 10.10, perhaps), you could get it working. I wouldn't give up just yet...

I have an Asus EEE 900 with Ubuntu 10.04 (Just the vanilla 32 bit version), Arduino works fine.  I wasn't a fan of Xandros.

Arduinos love netbooks! http://arduinoetcetera.blogspot.com/2011/01/hardware-hack-arduino-inside.html

I think you really do just have a driver issue.

Perhaps

Are you sure that the downloading/unzipping of the IDE worked properly?

There's nothing special about Netbooks.

I'm baffled why people think they are special computers.  They are just low-end laptops.
