Surf with the Eee PC™ Seashell—The beach brings to mind images of clear blue oceans, soft silk-like sand and, of course, the seashells. ASUS has taken one of nature’s most beautiful designs and combined it with the best of today’s innovations to provide users with the most stylishly functional Eee PC™ yet. Weighing just 1.1kg, the Eee PC™ Seashell is a highly portable companion that users can carry about, allowing them to surf the Internet, watch videos or keep in touch with their friends and family—even while at the beach. Equipped with a more-than-ample 10-inch display, ergonomically designed keyboard, intelligent energy management system and an intuitive multi-touch touch-pad, the Eee PC™ Seashell aims to provide users with the best mobile computing experience, wherever their journeys take them.
Elegantly Beautiful Seashell-inspired Design
With a design inspired by a seashell, the Eee PC™ Seashell is enveloped in an opalescent glossy exterior—created through In-Mold Roller technology—that is not only a head-turner wherever it goes, but also serves as a protective shell providing scratch resistance for day-to-day durability. Like the light sprinkling of fine sand on the exterior of a seashell, the lid is graced with tiny reflective specks which glisten in the light, adding the crowning touches to an already exquisite design. Likened to prying open an oyster to reveal its treasure within, the subtly curved lid reveals a 10-inch LED-backlit WSVGA glare-type display which provides users with a more-than-ample view for documents and multimedia files. An ergonomically designed keyboard makes typing on-the-move a breeze, measuring in at 92% compared to its conventional desktop counterpart.
Designed for Mobility and Long Computing Hours
Boasting a profile measuring just 1-inch in depth and weighing 1.1kg, the svelte and lightweight Eee PC™ Seashell’s compact dimensions make it the perfect runabout Internet device anywhere. It also packs 6* hours of battery life for many fun-filled hours on the road with a single charge, making it a truly perfect all-day entertainment companion. Super Hybrid Engine intelligently monitors the programs being used and deploys just the right amount of power required, all the while conserving power by constantly making adjustments between performance and power.
A Treasure Trove of Innovative Solutions for Simplicity and Convenience
The coup de grâce to the versatility of the Eee PC™ Seashell are the technological innovations that make it the best companion for the road. A multi-touch track pad allows users to intuitively zoom in or out of pictures via pinching, or navigating up and down pages by sliding along the touchpad. The Eee PC™ Seashell boasts a 2.5-inch SATA II 160GB hard disk drive for more-than-ample storage for music, videos and movies. It also features 10GB of online Eee Storage for access to files anytime, anywhere. 802.11b/g/n wireless connectivity allows users to connect to the Internet, as well as keep in touch with family and friends wherever they are.
