ASUS Eee PC: Exclusive Inside Look! - Conclusion

With screwdriver in hand, we decide to open up ASUS' new Eee PC to see what surprises are lurking inside.

Conclusion

 

The Eee PC is not for everyone; but having said that, it also seems to have a bit of everything (except a Microsoft OS, but they are working on that). It comes in a neat little package (Dimensions: 22.5 x 16.4 x 2.15~3.5 cm) with five different colors available, from the pastel green, blue or pink, to white or black. In the eastern countries it is already selling as fast as they can get them onto the market. The west however would be a little more circumspect and perhaps needs some time to grow into them.

 

Unfortunately I was unable to play with the software provided because it was all in Chinese. However, what I did see seemed extremely intuitive, and therefore I would recommend it for kids who were just learning to use a PC, or adults without much exposure to PCs.

 

It's a great starting platform. The fact that it is small and light (Weight: 0.92 Kg ), capable, functional and "cute" means that in general it should do really well once it launches worldwide. The goal of keeping the price below $500 USD will be a challenge, especially if they include a Microsoft OS. Right now at the current price point, it is perfectly positioned to prevail.

 

Sadly. because the product has not been released as a "completed" package means we cannot give it a score in our ratings.

 

Look for an update once the product is mature!
