For those with fond memories of the Eee PC range, ASUS is bringing it back with the new EeeBook X205. The company unveiled the cheap new system at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany today.




The ASUS EeeBook X205 features an 11.6-inch 1366x768 display, and runs Windows 8.1, but the best bit here is the price: just $199. Inside of the EeeBook X205 we have the quad-core Intel Atom T3735 Bay Trailer processor, 2GB of RAM, a VGA webcam, a microSDXC slot, and a micro HDMI port. All of this comes in a light package, weighing a total of 980g (or 2.16lbs).


On the storage side of things, ASUS is offering either 32GB or 64GB of flash memoy, with some cloud storage options: 15GB of Microsoft OneDrive for life, as well as 100GB of OneDrive, and 500GB of ASUS WebStorage for two years. ASUS hasn't provided a date for the new X205, but we should expect it to drop before the end of the year.
