Asus Eee PC 4G 701

 

Is this the beginning of something wonderful? You'll have to read the review to find out...

Refreshingly innovative and scandalously cheap, Asus' Eee PC is a great little device for those with basic needs. A great keyboard makes working on it surprisingly easy, while media playback adds a little extra to the package. Internet browsing is also...

ASUS Eee 701 4G

 

The Eee's 7in screen is actually one of the most impressive things about the machine. The resolution of 800x480 isn't huge, but it's bright and clear, and manages a very good viewing angle

Compact design, Great value, Impressive display

Battery life not the best

A great little laptop for use on the move, and decent value for money too

Asus Eee PC 701 notebook

 

Budget laptop users are getting excited about the One Laptop Per Child laptop with its once $100 price tag, but those looking for instant gratification can opt for the Asus Eee laptop PC priced from just £169 in the UK. But can a laptop so cheap really...

Small, cheap, plenty of programs, easy to use

No CD-ROM, small keyboard, no real memory

If you want a laptop to play real games beyond solitaire and penguin racing, do multimedia things like edit videos, mess around with pictures quickly, store your music collection in iTunes and run the latest edition of Microsoft Office or Adobe...

Asus Eee PC 701 review

 

Asus' ultra-ultra-portable laptop runs Linux and packs 4GB solid-state storage. Is it a blogger's dream or an underpowered disappointment?

Small, sturdy and feature-packed beyond belief. If you’ve slim fingers that’ll fit its tiny keyboard, the Eee PC is a stunning laptop for the money.

Asus' ultra-ultra-portable laptop runs Linux and packs 16GB solid-state storage. Is it a blogger's dream or an underpowered disappointment?

Chunky and solid. Loads of free software. Incredible 15 seconds start-up time

16GB of storage isn't multimedia-friendly. Screen a bit small.

Asus Eee PC 701 review

 

Asus's Eee PC 701 was the first ultra-portable laptop to cost less than £250. While it's still the cheapest ultra-portable in our group, it's starting to show its age.

Asus Eee PC 701 review

 

To PC Advisor, the ultra-small, ultra-lightweight computer remains the Holy Grail. Unfortunately, you generally still pay a premium for miniaturisation. The £220 Asus Eee PC 701 shatters that perception, though.

The Asus Eee PC 701 is no power system. You won't want to do video editing, or even image editing, on the device, and it's not going to serve as the multimedia centre for your home. However, the Eee PC provides a high level of functionality at a highly...

Asus EEE PC 701

 

The Asus Eee PC 701 is an ultra-portable laptop for a super-affordable price. It measures 225x165x35mm and weighs just 920g. It comes with 512MB of RAM and a 4GB solid state hard drive. The screen measures seven inches and it has a battery life of...

Asus - Eee PC 701

 

The Eee PC has caused quite a stir since it was first announced late last year. Asus has, on paper, come up with something of a Holy Grail. A small format, easy to use, low cost ...

I'm not sure I'd want to recommend the Eee PC as your first and only computer. It is more a second machine, maybe for travelling with, and only then if you can cope with the small keyboard and non-familiar operating system. I'd also say ‘watch this...
