ASUS Eee PC X101 - Thinnest and Lightess Netbook
ASUS has launched the Eee PC X101 netbook, the world’s thinnest and lightest netbook. Announced earlier this year at Computex, the X101 has a super thin 17.6mm profile and weighs a mere 920g so it is easily slipped in to bags for superior portability. Preloaded with the new MeeGo operating system, the X101 allows users to stay connected to their favorite social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and more. This is the perfect netbook as a first computer for kids, teens, as well as students.
The X101 shatters the mold of past netbooks with its super thin profile of 17.6mm and a lightweight 920g, yet is still equipped with all the standard netbook goods. It features the latest Intel® Atom™ N435 processor with 1GB of RAM, 2x USB 2.0 ports, a MicroSD Card reader, built-in webcam and 8GB SSD for quick startup and launch times. ASUS Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) technology is also built-in to help conserve battery life for the X101, which is available in a variety of colors including white, black, brown and red.
The new MeeGo OS was developed to help users stay connected through a convenient, easy to use interface. With specific applications for Facebook, Twitter, as well as a dedicated instant messaging client, keeping up with friends has never been easier. Google’s Chromium browser is also built-in to the MeeGo for web surfing, while a variety of cloud-based services like asus@vibe, the asus appstore and the popular Dropbox online file storage are also available for use.
