The ASUS EeeBook X205TA-SATM0404G is a bestselling 2015 11.6-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its bright display, fast day-to-day performance, smooth Windows 8 operation, long battery life and comfortable Chiclet keyboard and trackpad. Being a budget netbook, it has very limited storage and memory, and due to the small screen, it is more of a travel laptop than a desktop replacement. Users looking for an affordable small-size laptop for school or travel will be delighted with the hardware and software features of the X205TA-SATM0404G.
The ASUS EeeBook X205TA-SATM0404G is an incredibly light 11-inch laptop running Windows 8.1 operating system. With a sleek plastic exterior, it looks quite fragile but in use, it’s actually quite sturdy, and it doesn’t look too cheap either. Overall, its durable design is better than expected at this price range.
The onboard 1.33 GHz Intel Atom Z3735E Quad Core processor along with the integrated Intel HD Graphics, 2GB RAM and 32GB flash storage are standard features on the latest tablets and netbooks. So, this laptop is obviously not designed for heavy duty gaming or other highly demanding applications. However, ASUS has made a balanced trade off by offering low cost hardware with just enough power to run day to day tasks efficiently for up to 8 hours on a charge.
Weighing just 2.2 pounds, it hasn’t left out any essential ports and it includes all the usual connectivity options, although an extra USB 3.0 would’ve been great. It also includes a full chiclet keyboard that makes long hours of typing quite comfortable. As an added bonus, customers also get one year subscription to Office 365 personal and 1TB of cloud storage valued at over $50.
The X205TA-SATM0404G is suitable for school, for travel and for anyone looking for a small backup laptop that runs Windows and supported programs in a seriously value for money package.
