Asus’s Eee PC has made its return at IFA today, re-announced seven years after Asus first announced the netbook, and just a year after the company killed it off in 2013.
The new EeeBook X205 is a little different however, featuring an 11.6 inch screen that will run on Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 with Bing OS, instead of Linux or Chrome OS.
This OS is similar to Windows 8.1, but instead with Bing set as the default in Internet Explorer.
In terms of specs it will feature a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage. There’s also Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.
Inside the laptop there’s also 2x USB 2.0 sockets, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro-HDMI port and a microSD card slot, with a battery that is said to last up to 12 hours from a single charge.
The X305 will also have a full sized chiclet keyboard and a touchpad under the hood, and will be available in black, white, gold and red.
The EeeBook X205 will be available in the UK in the next couple of weeks for between £179-199.
