The Asus 701 eeepc is a revolutionary concept in computing. The small form factor falls between PDA and Laptop, making it the ideal daily companion for anyone who wants full computing power wherever they go without the inconvenience of carrying a full size laptop.

The epc comes with a highly capeable linux distro pre installed, an easy mode for beginners and and advanced mode for more experienced users.

Included are drivers for Windows XP which is easy to install onto the epc via the supplied DVD.

The epc handles Windows well and is extremely speedy if used with an N Lite‘d version of Windows, removing unnessesary components, languages, keyboards etc also helps to keep the 4Gb Solid-State hard drive free of clutter.

All of the components are ‘just small enough’ to be used comfortably, a theme carried throughout the device’s specification.
