Asus 3ePC – a laptop for around £100

Share

Over at the Computex show, Asus has turned a few heads by unveiling the 3ePC – a laptop that will retail for around £100.

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.

    If Packard Bell get their hands on it, not a lot!

  • I’ve seen it mentioned elsewhere that Packard Bell have signed up to distribute this in the UK (or was it Europe?). If so, could you p-l-e-a-s-e hurry up; I’m about to fork out for a laptop, but this looks like it’ll do everything I actually need, and in a more conveniently-sized box too.
