On the other hand, EeeBook E205SA has been designed using 360 degrees flip form factor mechanism. This feature enables you to switch from notebook to tablet and vice versa easily. Asus revealed that the notebook had the capability to provide a backup time of up to 8 hours.
The EeeBook E402 and EeeBook E205SA will have to compete with Acer One 14 and HP Stream Notebook. Asus EeeBook E402 features a 14-inch LED standard display, Intel Dual-Core Celeron N2840 Processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, 32WHrs 2-cell Li-ion Prismatic Battery Pack and Chiclet Keyboard.
