Asus Eee PC 701 Review

Asus Eee PC 701 Review

Pound for pound, the best value-priced notebook on the planet.

4 stars
(4 out of 5)

This past weekend a circular advertised a Vista-powered laptop equipped with a Celeron processor, 14.1-inch display, an 80GB hard drive, and a DVD drive for only $399. For the same price, the Asus Eee PCoffers the same amount of RAM and Celeron processor but a smaller seven-inch display, a measly 4GB of storage space, and no DVD drive. And yet there’s no way we would give up this two-pound wonder for a “regular” notebook.
