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.
