Back in March, I posted about an amazing sale at Buy.com about the ASUS Eee PC 900 for under $200 with free shipping. The post still gets constant hits, but the links lead to a model that’s out of stock. Fortunately, a similar deal has returned that’s much better than the last.
In as little as three months, another ASUS netbook drops in price to give you more bang for your buck. By comparison of the previous model sold for under $200, this version is equipped with twice as much memory, four times the disk space, and Windows XP.
These mobile systems sell like hotcakes. The predecessor is long out of stock, so you have to act quick. With people across the United States graduating from high school and going away to college, many of them are looking for a suitable device that is durable, inexpensive, and has the specifications to suit their web-surfing, paper-typing, and note-taking needs.
The ASUS Eee PC is a well-known netbook with about two millions units sold in 2008. Although the specs of this specific model may not seem like much, the system can easily be optimized so the machine can easily manage everyday computing like word processing, email, and browsing the web. This isn’t the kind of computer for playing games like Crysis or using high-end applications like 3ds Max and Photoshop, but cloud computing caters to machines like the Eee PC to take care of all the file storage and image-editing needs on the internet than on local storage.
If you or your child going off to college is looking for something much smaller and lighter than a textbook that is easy to store in something as small as an average handbag, then this netbook under $200 is an ideal candidate to consider among the family of netbooks on the market today. These are the popular computers that all of the kids are using these days.
