Asus Eeebook E200HA has a simplistic yet sleek, elegant and professional design, weighs just 2.16 pounds (less than 1kg) and measures 11.3 x 0.7 x 7.6 inches so it is super lightweight (lighter than other 11 inch machines on the market) and is only 0.7 inch thick. Glossy and reflective 11.6 inch LED-backlit high definition display has the 1366×768 pixel resolution which is more than adequate for a screen this small for clear and crisp images, thin bezels around the screen and keyboard equal to more viewing space and nicely spaced out good size keys- 1.8mm key travel and reduced key float. You can conveniently adjust the display to your eyes manually or automatically with the Tru2Life technology and you get accurate, vibrant and deeper colours and better visuals overall by fine-tuning different settings with the Asus Splendid Technology. It doesn’t have an Optical Drive but the more advanced 802.11ac WiFi with with Multiuser MIMO and very strong signals from any part of your house, the newer and improved Bluetooth 4.1 for stronger connection with your smart devices, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a Micro-SD Card Slot and a Micro-HDMI. A bit like a replacement of the previous Asus X205TA, this is a daily things computer with decent power and performance for those out and about a lot, boots up and shuts down fast and handles basic tasks like working on spreadsheets, chatting on Skype, streaming videos, having a couple of browsers open at the same time, not experiencing any delays and with the HD Graphics (Cherry Trail) you will be OK with light gaming like Minecraft and World of Warcraft at good frame rates and 1366×768 pixel resolution. And as long as your expectations are not too high from a sub-200 dollar laptop then you will be very happy with it overall.
