update technology ,more fast more smart...

Asus's latest release named the Asus 901 is a great little nifty laptop computer.

The Asus Eee PC 901 is essentially a suped up version of the earlier Eee PC 900 with better styling. The casing is much more sturdier than its predecessor. The edges are much smoother and the hinges are more solid in their actions.

The Asus EEEPC 901 is a lot less 'square' like the previous one. The 901 is definitely more durable and ready to take on hard knocks with its new design. Yet, after all this, the screen is still 8.9 inches with a great 1024x600 resolution.

The keyboard is exactly the same as the previous version. However, the keys are wide enough to use your fingers with ease. However, it would be better to use a standard keyboard when writing for long periods of time.

I would recommend keeping minimal items open when watching a video. The processor along with "no moving parts" inside the casing, also results in a cool computer while letting you get on with your strenuous tasks. The small slits (vents) cuts down the decibles, leaving the Asus Eee PC 901 working as a silent operator.

The connectivity options on the Asus 901 include wifi networking and bluetooth as standard. The other stuff, such as the battery pack, make the EEC 901 fractionally bulkier than its counterpart at 1.1kg, although it's hardly noticeable. In fact, it's negligible.

If you buy the Linux version of the Asus 901, the operating system will boot up incredibly fast compared to the Windows XP version. It will beat it by about 19 seconds and that is a great way of saving time. The display shows off some pre-installed items on tabs: Work, Play, Learn, Settings, Internet and Favourites. You get the standard links which are provided to major sites such as Yahoo.

Skype (the telephony application) is also a part of the software installed and it works with the 1.3 megapixel small camera (plus microphone) allowing for video conferencing. The "Work" tab leads to any of the OpenOffice programs; The Learn tab leads to a resource of educational programs (good for kids). in my opinion, the best feature is "Play" which houses all your Games, Photos, Music, Videos, Webcam and Sound Recorder software.

Overall, the Asus EeePC 901 has a user friendly display. In fact, it's so easy to use, Asus have gotten rid of the technical manual. Have you ever wondered what the EEE stands for in the model name? Easy to Play, Easy to Work and Easy to Learn (as demonstrated by the tabs). If you prefer the Windows XP version, you can simply buy it with XP pre-installed or you can install it on your own your choice.

The Asus 901's battery life (6-cell Li-Ion, 6600 mAh 7.4V) gives outstanding performance which is generally something found in the large 1000 models. The processor is also better; the previous 900 MHz Intel Celeron gives way to the more powerful and energy efficient 1.6GHz 'Atom', noticeably giving beter performance with more workload.

The Asus Eee 901 is available at a great price for under $440 (or even cheaper by the time you read this). Taken as a whole, the Asus Eee PC 901 is better value for money compared with the larger 1000 model.
