ASUS brings back the EeePC and it is running Windows 8.1 for only $199
When ASUS released their line of Eee PC units back in 2007, you either hated them or loved them. The original batch of affordable ultrabooks ran a Linux-based operating system and was aimed budget minded consumers. Eventually ASUS decided to load various Windows operating systems onto the machines including Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 7. The Eee PC line was finally put to rest in January 2013, but now it is back and running Windows 8.1
The latest ASUS EeeBook PC is named the X205, and retails for $199. The machine features an 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 display, Intel’s Atom Quad-Core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal flash storage. Along the outside, you’ll find a MicroSD card slot, 2 USB 2.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, headphone jack, and a VGA webcam for Skyping grandma.
This little 2.2 pound notebook is promising up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge and is looking to sneak into your backpack at only 0.7 inches thin. The ASUS EeeBook X205 is now available for purchase on Amazon.com in Dark Blue.Further reading: Asus, Microsoft, Windows, Windows 8.1
