ASUS breathes life to netbooks with Flare design concept
ASUS seems to be still far from being done with netbooks as they recently launched three new ones bearing their latest design concept called “Flare”.
Previous ASUS netbooks have the slim Seashell design and the Flare is the evolution of that. Still slim with nice curves, ASUS’ Flare notebooks sport a colorful metallic paint finish and polished chrome sidings for a more stylish and trendy look.
ASUS Eee PC X101CH
The Eee PC X101CH looks like your ordinary netbook but packs the new Intel Atom Cedar Trail N2600 processor. What does this mean? It’s more power saving so less heat but still has the power to play Full HD 1080p videos seamlessly. Its body is texturized to give a better grip and feel while having a sleek 1” thin body makes it easy and light to carry around since it’s just one kilogram.
The X101CH comes in Black and Red and has an SRP of Php13,995 and Php15,995 (with Windows 7 Starter).
- Intel Atom N2600 1.6GHz
- 1GB DDR3 RAM
- 320GB HDD
- 10.1” Anti-Glare LED Display
- 802.11 b/g/n wireless
- 2x USB 2.0, HDMI, Bluetooth 3.0
- 0.3 megapixel webcam
- Php13,995 / Php15,995 (with Windows 7 starter)
ASUS Eee PC 1025C
The ASUS 1025C is very similar to the X101CH but is powered by an Intel Atom Cedar Trail N2800 processor. It also comes with Instant On – an attribute that allows user to turn on the PC from sleep in two seconds. It can also go up to 12 hours on a single battery charge.
This netbook is now available in Paris Pink and City Gray with an SRP of Php16,995.
ASUS Eee PC 1225B
My personal choice among the bunch is the Eee PC 1225B which runs on the tried and tested AMD E-450 APU processor which can handle amazing visuals in a low-powered chip. The palm rest and the bezel has this brushed metal accent and it also has that metallic paint finish attribute of the Flare.
The Eee PC1225B comes in Matte Gray and Matte Red with an SRP of Php22,995.
- AMD Fusion APU E-450 1.66GHz
