Ultramobile PCs are keeping the computer sales industry humming amidst the global crisis still soaring down at a significant rate. Who would have not noticed that? Yes, that! Both global crisis and the market value of UMPCs.
One of the early bird when it comes to real PC portability is the ASUS EEE PC laptop series - oh, even the system unit for ASUS EEE PC desktop is light (and bubbly? hehe).
So far, the screen size of this series comes from 7 inches to 10.2 inches. Some versions comes with SSD (solid state device) that promises to give you be safer than hard disk. You can also get an ASUS EEE PC laptop with an Intel Celeron 900MHz processor or an Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz - Now that's an attempt for optimized portability and capability. It goes with its tagline "Easy to Learn, Easy to Work, Easy to Play".
Having this in mind, ASUS EEE PC laptop is one of the laptops on my shortlists. As for any product there are pros and cons. Of course, portability is what this device boasts. Though, I cannot expect this little device to do most of the tasks I load to any PC, without a hang-up or anything related. Presently, I spend most of my computing tasks with a Gateway PC, featuring a 400MHz Intel Pentium II processor, wheew! Wonder how both of us survive our computing session? At my end, I felt like it does everything too slow. At its end, it hums like asking for a rest. Perhaps a rest in peace - or at least passing it to less demanding user, wahaha.
Aside from this PC, would you like to suggest something on my list? Include some full-featured yet cheap PC... I mean the price, haha! The comment is open for everyone. Thanks in advance. :)
