ASUS Eee PC 701
December 5, 2007
The Eee PC is one of the smallest laptops on the market. At 225 x 35 x 165mm, it’s about the size of a hardback book, and weighs 920g. At SGD656.73, I will buy it at a wimp for my travelling needs. This is the missing link between PC and mobile phones.
It uses an Intel Mobile Celeron-M ULV 900MHz CPU, which is designed for long battery life ships with 512MB RAM as standard. Harddisk is solid state with 4GB, 33 percent of which is already in use when you buy the machine and it is possible to connect a large memory card to the SD media slot for extra storage. Surf the web with an integrated Wi-Fi adapter that supports 802.11b/g or install it with a 3G card for mobile band surfing. ASUS supplies its own Linux-based graphical user interface with some 40 applications, which includes Firefox, Skype, OpenOffice. Battery life has a claimed 3 hours 30 minutes.
Wonderful isn’t it? If you are not a gamer but just a surfer with occassional word processing, this is the dream machine.
