Well anyway we got a new Asus – Intel EEE 701 laptop on the horizon. And believe it or not, this 7-inch notebook will only cost as low as $199 to own. In case you’re curious as much as I was, EEE stands for “easy to learn, easy to play, easy to work”.
You see, this laptop is not a full-blown laptop. It’s like a multimedia device, a tablet PC, or an Internet PC. It has an 802.11G WiFi, Ethernet/Modem connectivity, a webcam, 512 DDRAM and it’s storage capacity uses flash disks ranging from 4GB, 8GB to 16GB.
If you think about it the features are limited. But so what? These days if you just have a browser and an Internet connection you could do just about anything online. You could check emails, store files online, you could send photos online, you could blog, you could type documents (thanks to google docs), you could surf, you could chat – things that average people do on the Internet. Well unless you are a software developer, you wouldn’t need a feature-packed laptop when you’re not at home. A simple one like this would do in my opinion.
I can’t wait for this to come out. It is said that it will have Windows XP as its operating system but what edition would it be knowing that we have limited storage capacity? Anyway, I would love to own one especially when the time comes that I become a full-time blogger! It will definitely help me and other bloggers to blog just about anything, anywhere, anytime.
