IFA 2014: 11.6 inch Bay Trail-T Z3735

Asus is trying just about everything these days. The company just launched its first wearable ZenWatch, it has phones and tablets as well as components, notebooks and desktops.

It is time to get back to the past and introduce a new netbook, a category that died with the popularity of tablet. Asus EeeBook X205 is 11.6 inch Atom based netbook that comes with 1.366 x 768 display. It comes with 2GB RAM and 32 or 64 GB storage. It weighs only 980 grams or 2.16 pounds and packs a quad core Atom Bay Trail-T Z3735 clocked at 1.86 GHz at its highest speed.

The machine comes with VGA webcam, microSDXC slot and even micro HDMI out. It will be available in black, white, gold and red. It comes with full size keyboard, 38Wh battery that should last up to 12 hours. This is not all as it seems that Asus provides 15GB of Microsoft OneDrive for live, plus 100GB of OneDrive and 500GB of ASUS WebStorage for two years.

The Asus EeeBook X205 will sell for €199 in Europe and $199 in the US and should be available in late Q3 or early Q4 2014.

The EeeBook X205 doesn't have a touch screen but it comes with rather large touch pad and it ships with Windows 8.1 Bing edition. This is quite a machine for the money and will make a lot of tablets and Chromebooks run for its money.
