A truly affordable ultra mobile notebook

This highly-desirable, handsome little notebook is available in glossy Pearl White or Fine Ebony, and with a choice of either Windows XP® or Linux operating system.

A year ago a notebook this small and powerful would have cost you well over £1,000. That makes the Asus Eee PC 901 an absolute bargain.

Half the size of a regular notebook

The first thing you’ll notice when you get this little beauty in your hands is just how compact and lightweight it really is. It’s small enough to easily fit into your backpack, briefcase or bag. And at just 1.1 kg, you’ll hardly even know it’s there.

The Asus Eee PC 901 netbook really is designed for people on the move.

Designed for ease of use

The Linux version is designed to be easy to use and is ideal for students. It comes preloaded with more than 40 free software applications (and not the usual bloatware, either) and a user-friendly tab-based interface.

The XP version will suit you if you’re already familiar with the Windows® operating system.

Watch movies and videos in widescreen

The 8.9" widescreen LCD display lets you comfortably perform any task, whether word processing, editing photos, or browsing the Web. And the built-in stereo speakers make watching films a joy.

The matte, non-reflective screen makes this an ideal notebook for outdoor use.

Reliable shockproof storage for all your files

The Eee 901 uses shockproof Solid State Drive (SSD) technology to withstand everyday bumps and knocks. Take comfort in knowing your vital files are safe.

With 20GB of storage (Windows XP® version has 12GB) there’s plenty of room to store your documents, photos, and music. You also get 20GB of free online storage, with 5GB worth of downloads per day. And if you need even more storage, you can easily add a Secure Digital (SD) card.

Amazing battery life

Thanks to Intel’s new Atom mobile 1.6GHz processor you can get up to 8 hours battery life under normal use. So, whether you’re doing your homework, sitting in the park chatting to friends on Facebook, or preparing a PowerPoint presentation, you won’t get cut short.

Stay connected with wireless networking and Bluetooth

The Eee PC 901 comes equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n wireless networking. With the super fast Wi-Fi 802.11n you can watch streaming video, or use the built-in webcam to video chat via Skype.

With built-in Bluetooth you can transfer files between your mobile phone and other devices — or even use a 3G mobile phone as a modem.

Experience a new level of interaction with multi-touch

With the multi-touch trackpad you can zoom and rotate images and documents using finger gestures. To scroll Web pages and documents, just drag two fingers across the trackpad; it works horizontally and vertically.

A word of warning: The Eee PC 901 is half the size of normal notebook. If you’ve got fingers like sausages and you’re used to touch typing, it may take a while to adapt to its small keyboard.

They’re selling like hotcakes

An ultra portable laptop capable of running multiple applications, with wireless connectivity, small enough to take everywhere, and at a bargain price — what more could you ask?

Eee PCs are highly-desirable and stocks sell out quickly. Asus expects to sell more than 4 million Eee PCs this year. It’s easy to see why.
