The notebook measures roughly 120 x 100 x 30mm and weighs around 900g. It uses a custom-written Linux operating system able to run Firefox, Office-compatible software, 512MB of ram a flash-based hard disk. Initially that’s a measly 2GB, so what that leaves you in terms of storage after the operating system and basic software is loaded up is open to question.
Although you might suspect it would be pitched at developing markets, Asus says it will be marketed all over the world. More to come on this I suspect.
