    Asus EeeBook X205: the netbook reborn as a $199 notebook - Liliputing (click for full article)

    Summary:

    Asus basically created the consumer netbook market when the company launched its first Eee PC in 2007. While netbooks have largely passed out of fashion, the legacy of thin, light, and cheap mobile devices lives on in a growing number of inexpensive Windows tablets and notebooks.

    Now Asus is getting back to its roots with the launch of a thin, light, portable, and cheap laptop. It’s even got the Eee name.

    Meet the Asus EeeBook X205. It’s a $199 thin and light laptop with an 11.6 inch display.

    Asus EeeBook X205 $199 Windows laptop coming in November - Liliputing (click for full article)

    -- The Asus EeeBook X205 is a portable Windows notebook with an 11.6 inch display, up to 12 hours of battery life, and a case that measures just 0.7 inches thick and weighs 2.2 pounds.

    Asus pretty much created the netbook market when it launched the first Eee PC in 2007. While netbooks have largely fallen out of favor in recent years, it’s interesting to see Asus revive the Eee name for this thin, light, and cheap notebook.

    First introduced in September, the Asus EeeBook X205TA is now available for pre-order from Amazon for $199. It should start shipping November 3rd.

    I didn't see any mention of touchscreen. At that price I will assume it is not a touchscreen but if touchscreen is possible at that price, I would think it would do really well.

    Here are the specs:

    ** The notebook features an Intel Atom Z3735 quad-core Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB to 64GB of storage. It has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, Windows 8.1 with Bing software, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 802.11n WiFi, a microSD card reader and micro HDMI port. **

    It seems to me that if Asus can put out a Windows laptop with an Intel Bay Trail chip for $200 - then Zotec could actually put out their mini PC with similar specs for around $150?
