The X201E 11.6" Notebook Computer from ASUS features a compact form factor for an ultraportable design. Weighing less than three pounds, the X201E can be carried around in your bag with much less effort than, say, a 15.6" notebook or even a 14" laptop.
The 11.6" widescreen display is backlit with LED lamps, which are more energy efficient than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and the 1366 x 768 native resolution is supported by integrated Intel HD graphics.
The system is powered by a dual-core Sandy Bridge 1.1GHz Intel Celeron B847 processor. It also has 4GB of 1333MHz DDR3 RAM, a 320GB 5400rpm hard drive, a 3-in-1 media card reader, 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers.
Windows 8 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles, which provide notifications in real-time. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
