The Asus Eee PC 900: a Preview - A Look at the Design
(Page 2 of 4 )
Roughly the size of a hardcover book and weighing 2.2 pounds (a whole 100 grams heavier and 6 mm longer than the previous model), the laptop still sports the same ivory white sheen. Here the similarities begin to end however. Whereas the 700 models featured a dismal seven-inch screen (supporting resolution up to 800x480), the newer laptops have a viewable screen of 8.9 inches (supporting resolutions of up to 1024x600).
Another change is the location of the speakers, which previously sat on the sides of the monitor, but are now located below the wrist rest, at the bottom of the laptop. The built-in mouse has been given a wide aspect ratio, giving users a more realistic interaction with the on-screen cursor, while the left and right mouse buttons have taken on a sleek silver color, and been made easier to press.
Another addition is the use of a multi-touch on the mouse pad. Users can use two fingers to scroll vertically or horizontally. It also features a neat ability to zoom in and out of documents via a pinching/spreading of the two fingers, similar to the same function in the Mac Book Air.
