During the old times, when man discovers a new frontier, usually a vicious struggle ensues over control and claims of territories. Now, as man starts breaking into the cloud computing frontier, the struggle for dominancy no longer involves bloody battles and countless sieges but the competition’s still as fierce as ever. The latest competitor to wander into the realm of cloud computing and claim a spot for its own is the new ASUS Eee PC X101. This notebook comes with easy access to the ASUS App store that lets user download applications to help them increase their productivity or simply enjoy multimedia entertainment. It can also support games, applications, and Google Chrome extensions and themes from Chrome Webstore. Furthermore, it can access Asus@Vibe – a center for fun, handy, and rich cloud computing apps. The X101 even comes with the popular Dropbox online storage service that helps expand, sync, and back up your files over the cloud.
The ASUS Eee PC X101 is also designed from the ground up to keep you connected. It is preloaded with Asus’ own MeeGo OS that features a new GUI that integrates commonly used social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter into its homepage for instant access. Lastly, non-native English speakers who want to improve their mastery of the language will also benefit from the cloud-based gadget’s British Council English Language Learning application. This app is bundle with videos, audio, and interactive games geared towards learning the English language.
The wing-inspired latest addition to Eee PC notebook is designed like any mobile explorer should be –thin and ultra-lightweight. The travel-friendly Eee PC X101’s slim (less than 17.6 mm) and lightweight (less than 920 grams) profile allows it to fit into backpacks or bags without consuming much space or adding unnecessary weight.
