As a travel blogger who is constantly on the move and has an innate need to capture all big and small travel stories in photos and words, I often find my enthusiasm marred by lack of effective gadgets that are easy to carry around. More importantly my laptop – it’s a bulky piece and more often than not, I prefer leaving it at home rather than lugging it all around in my backpack that any-ways remains stuffed with other sundry travel requirements. My laptop is not just bulky but has battery issues too. So rather than carrying a burden of a laptop on my back, I prefer to come back from the travels and then transfer all the data on it once I am back. This of course, takes the surprise elements out because by the time I am back home after days of travel, old photographs begin gathering the proverbial dust and the old fun stories too have lost their charm.
It's because of these sad after-stories that I am almost always on the lookout for news of newer and better gadgets and computer devices. And today when a tech-savvy friend introduced me to a couple of ASUS netbooks, my curiosity got piqued - for they indeed look like what I have been looking for! I have specially been taken in by the charms of the sleek and powerful ASUS EeeBook X205TA, the stylish and lightweight, netbook, perfect for someone who's always on the move and needs a powerful portable computer device.
The ASUS EeeBook X205TA is not just compact and elegant, but also boasts of an great tech specs, has Windows 8.1 OS, comes with 11.6 inch screen, and is super lightweight - weighs less that 1Kg! And since battery life in current laptop is my particular concern, I looked up the battery details on this one and found that X205 comes with a 2-cell battery that is equipped to provide up-to 12 hours of battery life. Also the ASUS WebStorage allows a user to sync all personal files between the personal devices, making file accessing and sharing easier.
Another ASUS product that has got me tempted is the ASUS All In One PCET2040. The brand is promoting it as a simple, versatile and powerful personal computer, and from the looks of it, this device indeed looks like a must have for people like me, who want their gadgets to be simple and easy to use and yet be super efficient and savvy.
Here's a look at it's technical specs -
Besides the fact that ASUS All In One PCET2040 is an incredibly fast and powerful device, the innovative Gesture Control feature too has got me excited about this one! One can control the multimedia players or even browse the internet from up to five meters away from the computer. Now that would be fun!
