Asus Eee PC X101 Goes Retail

ASUS has finally launches the Eee PC X101, which is cheaper than most smartphones. This Atom-based netbook should be fit for light computing such as writing articles. Priced at $200 (Rs 9000 approx), it's something that most of people can now afford.

This netbook sports a 10.1" screen having pixel dimensions of 1024x600. It runs on a 1.33 GHz Intel Atom N435 single-core CPU coupled with a gigabyte of RAM. Other specs include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 8 GB SSD storage, an SD card slot, 2 USB ports, and a 3-cell battery. The device measures 10.3" (l) x 7.1" (w) x 0.7" (d) and weighs about 0.9 kg. To keep costs down, ASUS has shipped the product without Microsoft's Windows OS. Hopefully, the onboard MeeGo OS will cater to the basic needs of netbook users.

The Eee PC X101 can be ordered for $200 from here, with an additional shipping cost of $60 to India. However, there is no word on the Indian release date as yet.
