Meeting Description

Date: February, 2008:
Asus EEE Notebook - OCCA new website

The ASUS EEE PC is a sub-subnotebook computer designed by ASUS and Intel, noted for its combination of very light weight, small size, solid-state drive and $399 price. It weighs less than 2 pounds, has an 800x480 screen, boots and connects to Wi-Fi while a normal notebook would still be loading Windows, and provides 3 USB ports, an SD slot and a
reasonable Qwerty keyboard. It comes with Antivirus, Firefox, Open Office and much more pre-installed software, making it an appliance type Linux computer.

CNet summarized: "For less than $400, the Asus EEE PC offers an impressive package for portable Web surfing and basic productivity, as long as you keep expectations tempered. The incredibly approachable price outweighs any shortcomings; it's a near perfect choice for a highly portable second or backup laptop."

After spending a couple weeks with an Evaluation unit, OCCA member Steve Shank has a lot to say about the pluses and minuses of this unit and the various models available. He will also discuss what he sees as the market for it. The evaluation unit will be passed around for people to actually try out.

Mike Mahanay, Director of Marketing for CTL, along with Rachel Towner, Account Manager, will be presenting their plan for this product. CTL is currently working to take this base and provide a CTL branded version that will be competitively priced to sell.
