Here at Mobile Geeks we have a real affinity for the days of the original EeePC and today’s EeeBook is clearly a product of the ASUS EeePC legacy at ASUS. The 11.6 inch LED back-lit display has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.
The Intel Atom Z3735 is based on the Bay Trail-T architecture and is backed by 2GB of RAM and either 32G or 64GB of storage. Connectivity includes 2 USB 2.0, a Micro HDMI port, audio jack, microSD card slot plus WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.
The ASUS EeBook X205 is impressively light for its size, weighing in at only 980 grams. It is available in a Black, White, Gold and Red and should excel in terms of battery life due to its decent battery and low power processor., indeed ASUS claims up to 12 hours. No word yet as to exactly when it will arrive, although we would expect to see it in Q4 of this year.
