The super lightweight solid-state drive Asus Eee PC showed up at my house the other day. It was sent to me courtesy of Asus, specifically thanks to an engineer of theirs who is a regular community member of ours. Without further ado, let’s do the unboxing!
As I open the box… something on the inside was glowing! I pulled out things like a copy of Microsoft Works, a battery notice, and some other papers. But.. that was it. There was nothing else in the box. I guess that makes this a non-event? I’m kidding of course. I already had the Eee PC running before I began recording.
It’s so small and light. It’s just insane. I have never found myself attracted to this size of a laptop. I have always craved power. There are times, however, that you just don’t need that much power. I’ve found that having a laptop near the television is a good thing. I may want to look something up or check my email during commercials, you know. Having a lightweight laptop for that purpose is great. There is a built-in webcam on this system, so I had to try it out! I’ve already uploaded a video to YouTube, called Asus Eee PC 4G Test Recording.
Here are some of the features of the Eee:
- At 7″ and weighing only 0.92kg, you can take the Eee PC anywhere.
- Bumps and shocks are no longer issues. With a dependable solid-state disk, you get unparalleled shock-protection and reliability.
- Power-efficient design provides longer operating time when on the go.
- With a rapid start-up time, the Eee PC is always ready to get into action.
- No technical manual required with the specially designed, user-friendly and intuitive graphic interface.
- You’re always connected with built-in WiFi 802.11 b/g that automatically detects and connects to the Internet at any hotspot.
- The Eee PC includes the documents and the e-mails software, and a suite of other productivity software to help keep you on track.
- Upload photos and videos and share them instantly on Flickr or YouTube without waiting till you get home.
- Enjoy music and videos with extensive support for a wide range of digital multimedia.
- Log on to Skype or other network, and you can connect with friends anywhere, anytime.

This little machine is an excellent buy, and perfect for anyone who doesn’t need a powerhouse of a laptop.
