Anyone in the market for a low-priced portable computer? The ASUS EeeBook X205TA-US01-BL Signature Edition Laptop has been reduced in price, at the Canadian online Microsoft store. While I don’t have the true “was” price, you can pick up this budget lappie just now for only $199 with free shipping!
Here’s a quick list of some of the important parts of the specification:
- 6” HD display
- 2GB memory/32GB eMMC
- Micro SD / Micro HDMI
- 2 x USB 2.0
- Up to 12 hours battery life
According to a customer service rep at Microsoft, this is a permanent price drop to this lower level. So, while there may not be any urgency in ordering one as the deal isn’t set to expire as such, they may only have limited stocks available at any one time. If you are interested in buying, I’d do it sooner rather than later.
Now, this is a budget model of a laptop and it won’t run the latest games or multi-task with seamless workings. It’s a good little machine for some basic tasks, school work, internet browsing, etc. If you want a more powerful computer, you’ll pay a lot more for that privilege. But all in all, it’s a great little machine for the budget-concious.
For the Canadian Microsoft store, all people in education or military service can actually get an extra 10% discount. If you qualify and want to avail of this offer, then people in educational establishments can just go here to place your order.
