In terms of tech specs, you can’t expect much for a $199 machine. The EeeBook X205 features an 11.6-inch display with a 1366 x 768 screen resolution, running an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor (with InstantGo) with 2GB of RAM, and Asus claims up to 8 hours of battery life. The laptop is compact and features an ergonomic design. It’s not too heavy, it only weighs less than 2 pounds with a full-size keyboard. The touchpad is large with support for Smart Gestures while using Windows 8.1.

First look at EeeBook X205

ASUS is also including 100GB of free OneDrive storage for 2 years, which is expected as the company also offers similar offers with Google Drive with every Chromebook. It’s become clear that Microsoft is trying to stop Google from expanding its Chromebook idea, by making Windows really cheap or even free in new devices to lower the cost and trying to move users to finally trust the cloud. The ASUS EeeBook X205 cost $199 and it will be available in the U.S. and Europe in November. Source ASUS All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
