Asus Eee PC: the 7-inch, flash-based laptop


Intel and Asus teamed up to deliver one of the smallest and cheapest mobile internet devices around – the Asus Eee PC. Here are the specs:

Asus Eee PC 701

EeePC 701 Specification:
Display:7 inches
CPU & Chipset: Intel Mobile CPU & chipset (probably Centrino 1 GHz and up)
Operating System: Linux os Microsoft Windows XP compatible
Communication: 10/100 Mbps Ethernet; 56K modem
Connectivity: WiFi 802.11b/g
Graphic: Intel UMA
Memory: 512MB, DDR2-400
Storage: 4GB, 8GB and 16GB Flash
Webcam: 300K pixel video camera
Audio: Hi-Definition Audio CODEC; Built-in stereo speaker; Built-in microphone
Battery Life: 3hrs (4 cells: 5200mAh, 2S2P)
Dimension & Weight: 22.5 x 16.5 x 2.1~3.5cm, 0.89kg

It won’t replace your current full-blown laptop now but you have something very light to carry around for all your surfing and blogging needs.

Although the battery life is just 3 hours, it still beats a lot of regular 2-hour laptops out there. A full keyboard, less than 1 KG in total weight, flash based so there are no moving parts in the storage for a bump-proof ride, and wifi connectivity tops it all. The best part is the price is as low as USD$199! How cheap is that, huh?

Asus Vento Gaming Case and a Dead PC

I was at PC Express in Pasong Tamo late afternoon having one of my desktop PCs checked and repaired. At first, I thought it was just the power supply which causes the PC to die down whenever all peripherals are plugged in. Turns out a faulty (or shorted?) HDD is causing all the mess. I never thought a shorted HDD could cause the PSU not to power up. I ended up buying a new HDD (why do I keep on replacing a new HDD every year?). I thought Seagate HDDs are one of the toughest around?

While waiting for the techs to install the new HDD, I walked around inspecting some of the newer cases on display. This one got my full attention — an Asus Vento 3600 Gaming Case.

Asus Vento 3600

First time in ages I’ve seen a beautiful chassis. Where are those guys selling expensive PC casing in Greenhills? The Asus Vento 3600 comes in four colors — green, blue, red and black — though I only saw the last two in the shelves. They really look like shiny brand new Ferraris (the paints they used looks like ones for cars). I asked the sales guy and he said it costs a whooping Php10,000 ($200). Now that’s already the same price as a Pentium 3.4 GHz Dual Core CPU.
