The Asus 11.6" Notebook Computer features a compact form factor for an ultraportable design. Weighing less than 3 lb, the X201E can be carried around in your bag with much less effort than, say, a 15.6" notebook or even a 14" laptop. The 11.6" widescreen display is backlit with LED lamps, which are more energy efficient than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and the 1366 x 768 native resolution is supported by integrated Intel HD graphics.
The system is powered by a dual-core Sandy Bridge 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron B847 processor. It also has 4 GB of 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM, a 320 GB 5400 rpm hard drive, a 3-in-1 media card reader, 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers. Ubuntu is the installed operating system.
