First Impressions: Asus EeeBook X205TA-FD005BS in Review

 

Netbook, redefined. Asus sells a handy subnotebook with Windows 8.1 Bing for 219 Euros (~$272). So how much netbook do customers get for so little money? Asus refers to elegance, premium experience, performance, 12 hours of web surfing, and vibrant...

Asus brings all the core features of a netbook without neglecting some degree of quality and look. The EeePC revival is handy, delivers a long battery life and features acceptable input devices. Alike in other devices with the same components, the Bay...

Asus EeeBook X205TA Review and Ratings

 

A $199.99 full-Windows laptop with an 11.6-inch screen, the hyper-aggressively priced EeeBook is a worthy competitor to HP's Stream 11. But try its keyboard, if you can, before you jump in.

Better, brighter screen than on competing, like-priced HP Stream laptops ; Very light and thin ; Large touch pad

Shallow key feel and balky space bar ; Touch pad is prone to errant swipes ; USB ports are both the 2.0 kind

The Asus EeeBook X205TA would be an Editors’ Choice winner for budget Windows laptops were it not for the keyboard. We’re not sure that it’s realistic, at $199.99, to expect a notebook maker to pull off a perfectly rounded laptop, especially given the...

Asus EeeBook X205TA review: For students on a budget; but low storage and no USB 3.0 port are downers

 

We review the Asus EeeBook X205TA which is trying to get back the netbook category in vogue. Will it succeed? Let's find out

So does the Asus EeeBook X205TA offer better value proposition than the Acer Chromebook C720 ? I would have to say yes, for the simple reason that this is a more familiar OS and you can use your regular Windows applications online as well as offline to...

Thin, light and bundled with a year of Office365, the Asus EeeBook X205TA is a Chromebook beater and a real bargain

Asus EeeBook X205TA review

 

Cheap, thin and weighs less than a kilogram, but it's sunk by numerous compromises

Building a competitive cloudbook is a tough ask in the face of such strong competition, and while Asus has done alot right, the numerous flaws make the X205TA hard to recommend.­ If you're looking for an ultraportable, affordable laptop, then sadly the...

Review: Asus X205TA

 

Another budget machine is ready for consumption for the masses, and this time it's Asus that is taking a swing, crafting a computer for people that need a keyboard, a screen, and something that won't hurt the back at all.

Bright screen; Very lightweight under a kilogram and easy to carry; Relatively comfortable typing experience, though mostly for new typists; Expandable via microSD; One year of Microsoft's Office 365 included in the box;

No touchscreen; Proprietary charge connector; 32GB storage isn't enough, with only 15GB available out of the box; Mouse feels very cheap and doesn't appear to support all gestures; No USB 3.0, only USB 2.0; Screen washes out at angles easily; No...

Asus EeeBook X205TA Netbook Review

 

Asus EeeBook X205TA Netbook is the latest Windows 8 laptop that comes with an unbelievable price tag.

Budget Windows 8 laptops have never been better than this. The Asus EeeBook X205TA Netbook offers a solid keyboard, portability, bright display, category-leading power backup and snappy performance encased in a sleek package. The webcam isn’t perfect...
