The Asus Eee PC series

The Asus Eee PC is a netbook computer line by Asus and a part of the Asus Eee product family. It was first introduced in late 2007. Soon it became very popular for its combination of a light weight, Linux operating system, solid-state drive and relatively low cost. After this, new models were released which had the option of Windows XP operating system and traditional hard disk drives. This series of Asus immediately hit the chord with the masses and became the talk of the town owing to its comparatively low cost.

The Asus Eee series new launches

After the launch of this series in the late 2007, Asus launched a new Eee PC netbook. However, it has been a while since the customers received a new model from the Asus family. The users have been waiting with anticipation to experience new models from Asus. Interestingly there had been no announcement from Asus about the new models until recently when it launched the Eee PC 1201K model and we had the first look at it. This model is full of surprises as a lot has been changed in the hardware compared to the previous models.

Processor changed AMD in, Intel out

We are all aware of the long association of Asus motherboards and Intel processors. All the previous models of the Eee PC series had Intel’s familiar Atom family processor. But surprisingly Asus has changed the processor in this particular series and has introduced the Eee PC 1201K model with AMD Geode NX 1750 processor with a SiS 741GX/966L chipset. All the previous models of this series have an Intel’s Atom processor.

Other specifications

The Eee PC 1201K model has the following specifications :-

• It has a Windows XP Home as the operating system.
• It includes a 320GB hard drive.
• It also has a VGA web cam.
• It also includes a built-in card reader.
• It contains 1GB of RAM.
• It includes a 12.1″ LED backlit WXGA display (1366×768).
• It also has Blue tooth 2.1+EDR.
• It contains VGA port, two USB 2.0 ports,
• It also includes Ethernet, audio in/out, and a 6-cell battery.

Final Note

Asus has still not revealed the price of this model or the date of release of this product. This combination of Asus with AMD is not something that we get to see in most of the products. It is an exclusive and rare combination. What the pros and the cons are will only be out after we get to use this product. It will be available in 2 colors, Black and Silver. To conclude, there is only one thing which we can say, though Asus has made us wait for a long time for this new product we must say that it has come out with something to look forward to.

Alienware goes ultraportable!!!

The Alienware we know has always churned the biggest and meanest machines which could put any famous case modder to shame. Even in the laptop segment Alienware designed heavy and powerful machines which in their own way could compete with desktop gaming rigs. The last area where you would expect the company to vie for a market share would be the ultraportables. But apparently Dell thinks otherwise.

Alienware’s M11x Ultraportable marks the entry of the company into ultraportable segment. Before you start wondering if Alienware has gone soft, the M11x is no toy. It is a wolf in a sheep’s clothing. Except for the form factor nothing is ultraportable in this baby. Here is a full spec sheet:

• Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 @ 1.73GHz
• 4GB of DDR3 RAM (800MHz)
• 11.6″ LCD (1366×768), LED Backlit
• Intel GMA4500M HD (IGP)
• NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M (Discrete)
• 500GB (7200RPM) Seagate Hard Drive
• 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
• No Optical Drive
• 1.3 megapixel webcam
• VGA output
• HDMI Output
• DisplayPort Output
• USB 2.0 x 3,Mini 1394a FireWire
• RJ-45 (Ethernet 10/100)
• Headphone x 2 / Mic Input Jack
• SD / MMC / SDHC Multimedia Card Reader
• SIM Card Slot
• Stereo Speakers
• 4.5 Pounds (with battery)
• Removable 8-Cell Li-ion Battery
• 11.25″ x 9.19″ x 1.29″ (Dimensions)
• Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

The metal casing is sturdy and gives a sense of strength and rigidity. As is the case with any Alienware laptop the keyboard is excellent with almost no flex . The trackpad too is nice and large. The keyboard is lit up with a bluish hue rather than the multi colour backlighting seen on some of the other Alienware laptops. The screen is crystal clear with displaying a wide gamut of colours in absolute clarity. The screen has a native resolution of 1366×768 which should suffice for all your gaming needs.

The M11x performed very well in the various benchmarking tests namely the 3D Mark Vantage. Its performance was comparatively lower compared to the newer core i3 powered laptops. Nevertheless it makes up for the performance lapse in the gaming arena thanks to its GeForce GT 335.

Battery life is pretty good considering the powerful components inside. Normal usage gave about 5 hours of battery life while intense online gaming gave a little over 2 hours.

The M11x is a very good laptop for the gamer on the move. The ultra small form factor and the powerful components are very appealing indeed. The lack of an optical drive is a letdown though considering it is built for gaming. Considering the fact that Alienware plans to get Optimus to the M11x soon this laptop sure is a very good option.
