RM Asus miniBook PC – �169.00, 1kg, 3G student computer to go


The RM Asus miniBook is smaller than an A5 pad, weighs less than 1kg, has a 7 inch screen and integrated webcam…wait…it’s an eee PC, isn’t it? With another badge and a student focus? Anyhoo, it costs a paltry £169.00 for the base 2 GB solid drive model and is available from next month. We’re strangely attracted to it’s charms (especially with the optional 3G module, although 2.5 hours battery life is pretty poor).

 The RM Asus miniBook is the perfect choice for students who want a genuine anywhere anytime access device at a startlingly low price. Smaller than a A5 pad and weighing less than 1kg and coupled with a host of features including solid-state drive and webcam, this device has everything a student requires from mobile computing. With its stylish looks, 7″ screen, integrated card reader and optional 3G module this notebook is ideal for those looking for the latest technology on their device at prices from £169!


  • Still not convinced about this one vs the Via Nanobook reference design. I like the idea of the Nanobook’s 30 gig HDD and 5 hours battery – how can I cope with just 4 gig worth of space for my program files!? I’m happy to carry around a wee ext hdd for my files etc, but shame on Asus for making me put up with any less than 10gig onboard storage! With the cost of flash memory these days, at least give me the choice along with an inflated price!!

  • Where is the Eee?? That thing was due out months ago.

  • Can’t wait for the RM Asus miniBook to be released. I am looking forward to it.
