Every year, there is a day that trumps all others when it comes to retailers trying to kick-off their holiday shopping season. That day is called Black Friday and it will be here in about a week.
If you are in the need for a new laptop, Staples will be selling the ASUS EeeBook X205 which is an 11.6-inch Windows 8.1 notebook that weighs about 2lbs for $99, saving you $150. While the device is not a powerhouse in terms of specs, it does offer up decent battery life and should cover the basics too.
The specs of the device are listed below:
- Intel® Atom Z3735F 2MB Cache, 1.33GHz, up to 1.83GHz Processor
- 2GB System Memory (DDR3L)/ 32GB Flash
- 802.11abgn + Bluetooth 4.0
- UMA Intel HD Graphics
- Inputs: 2x USB 2.0, 1x Micro HDMI port
- 11.6" HD Display
- Windows 8.1 with Bing
The laptop will also come with
1-year subscription 1 month trial of Microsoft Office 365 (Microsoft's original post said 1 year of Office 365) and Microsoft OneDrive, which includes 15GB of perpetual storage plus 100GB for 2 years.
If the name of this device sounds familiar, it's because Asus recently resurrected their Eee brand for these low cost notebooks.
No word if you will be able to pick this device up online but you can head over to Staples at the source link below to learn more.
