Asus Eee PC

Since kyh and Butt wanna have a glimpse at my new toy, and Angeles wanna see the size of my UMPC Asus Eee PC in comparison with my 13.3 inch MacBook, I will comply. Here are the pictures.

My beloved Galaxy Black Asus Eee PC 701. I prefer black-coloured gadget, hence i choose the galaxy black instead of the pearly white colour. (My point-n-shoot camera, prosumer camera and DSLR camera and my pda, Palm Tx are all black in colour) .

So small and light, weighing less than 1 kg, hence portable. Half the size of my MacBook. Yeah, SIZE DOES MATTER !!

And it comes pre-installed with all the necessary software and application (such as Firefox browser, email, word and office documents, power point presentations, photo, movies, instant messaging, skype, sticky notes, dictionary, paint, games etc), with built in webcam, microphone and voice recorder, built in SD/MMC card reader, WiFi and ethernet and 3 USB hub, running on Linux Xandros OS. And, it's affordable, and you can get it at RM 1,299. Although the SSD capacity is only 4 Gb, but that is not a major problem. I can always use a pen drive, external HDD or SDHC card.

Hence, I love my Eee PC ;)

Furkids in Hong Kong said...

The eee pc is indeed a great little lappie and a super bargain too!

I introduced my skeptical friend to one, and now she, and others, are happily using them now!

They got the blue, white and pink one.

I like it a lot, especially because it's so much smaller and lighter than our Macbook.

Have fun with it!

Chev said...

furkids,
The Asus Eee PC is indeed a great invention with affordable price. Yeah, I love the fact that it is easy to bring around. I have no regret buying it and I love it :)

I kinda lazy to bring my MacBook when I go out as it is heavy.. and another valid reason is it's "expensive". LOL

Eryn said...

Wah. Very yeng. I still prefer white. Haha.

papercrazy said...

OMG really small...

I din expect it to be that small when told me about it the other day...

how u type??

Chev said...

eryn,
Hehehhe, one reason why i didn't choose the pearly white Eee PC is that my white MacBook has become a grey MacBook. LOL.. There is discolouration on my space bar and another part of the MacBook. ;)

paper crazy,
Tell u liao mah it's very small and handy. Cute leh my toy? ;)

Can type wan lah.. I will let u fondle with and drool at it during CNY time :P

padi_friends said...

Chev said...

padi friends,
That's true. I bought it becos it is handy and easy to bring around wherever I go. I still use my PC or my MacBook/laptop when I'm at home :)
