Asus unveiled a new product during IFA 2014 that recalls days of the company’s foray into the netbook market, the EeeBook X205. It’s a Windows 8.1 machine that won’t break the bank.
The EeeBook X205 is powered by an Intel Atom Z3735 processor and runs Windows 8.1 with Bing. It’s equipped with an 11.6-inch display with a 1366 x 768-pixel resolution, a VGA front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, in addition to two free years of 500GB Asus WebStorage, 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi support, two full USB 2.0 jacks, a microSD card slot, microHDMI and up to 12 hours of battery life.
The Asus EeeBook X205 will launch in black, white, gold and red colors when it hits the market — Asus did not provide a specific launch date or discuss specific markets. The starting price is just $199.99, which appears to be pretty affordable for everything included.
