The Toughie...

Oh this is indeed a toughie; giving a choice (to spoil) to someone who relishes on technology is an absolutely bad idea for sure. But then, there are those KPI's hidden in our subconscious tech-blended-mind that always redefines the course; there are those unique key approbation parameters that operate "at the back-end" while we proceed towards freezing our preferred selection. And the parameters would ideally vary from one person to another depending on their applicability, congruity and utility; if you ask me to define my choice, I would prefer to choose the expression "completeness" because at the end of the day, you don't want a trade-off for sure.
I have been working with the MSME Sector, Government of West Bengal for over a year now and in course of my work, I have to visit the interiors of Bengal since our target critical mass belongs mostly to the grass-root level. The last thing I want, on the run, is to face a technology glitch while playing an enterprising video or demonstrating online marketing through various live examples. In-fact, with the spirit of multi-tasking taking over, I guess our gadgets should be capable enough to support multiple operations seamlessly. Honestly speaking, in terms of gauging the quality of portable gadgets (Laptops or tablets to be specific) I haven't been totally appeased with the performance of all the "Big Brands" as we know them, it's effectively an adjustment of sorts; but then that is the very reason why I switched to ASUS in the year 2014. I've been using the ASUS X551CA-SX075D since then; it's been an efficient, potent and cost effective solution...a combination that is almost hypothetical.
Yes, I pretty much feel 'at home' while writing this post; it's almost filling up a "360 degree feedback form" for a couple of colleague's who have been working with me throughout the year...and of course, this time I'm handed over the privilege to explore more about them. Yes, it's a tough choice I know...and I genuinely feel for the managers who have to face this tricky situation of rating two employee's who have performed equally well during the last financial year; the system doesn't allow him to draw a parity. It's a toughie my friend; anyway when two brothers of the same mother ASUS EeeBook X205TA and the ASUS All In One PC ET2040 are being judged on a scale of utility, serviceability and performance, I guess the former gets a nod over the latter. That, my friend, comes with the caveat that on paper, there's almost nothing to choose between the two. Oh well, since ASUS has made me do the unfair 'election', let me justify the choice.

The Laptop On Diet: Oh well, if there's a scale that puts the humans and the machines together on the same scale, the Eeebook might give that Bollywood actresses a good run for their money. With a 17.55 mm thickness with the neat finishing, the Eeebook series certainly deserves the tag "Dieting Laptops". By the way, the performance is no way affected in achieving this Ultra-thin form. The fact that it can fit in even in a shoulder bar, excites me the most since it's difficult to carry large accessories into remote village where there is no motor-able road.

Recommended for the spondylosis patients: As a logical extension of the virtue "super-sleekness" , the natural question that would arise is "How heavy is it?" And the answer that's readily served on the platter is "1 Kg". Boy oh Boy, that's almost like a feather, it's actually an outlandish prospect considering the level of ingrained sophistication; that is perhaps the bliss of technology and it's evolution. Talking about my first impression? Well, I already like you.

Longevity Factor: The next obvious question that might come up is "How long does it last?" Well, talking from a non-technical point of view, there could be two interpretations of the question:- 1. The Insurance aspect 2. The battery life. The answers are fairly simple...1. It depends on how you use it, the general impression with ASUS is that they make fairly tough and durable product and this is no exception. The battery life, my friend, is remarkable; equipped with a 2-cell battery that can provide up to 12 hour of back-up in case of emergency long-term power failure, this series is certainly a "Level Up" in many aspects.

Seamless Multitasking: Let me be slightly critical in analyzing the technical specification; being an IT Consultant does help in a number of respects because you get to know the best players in this field as well as their relative felicity in terms of offering the best of services and products to the consumers. And I'm glad to announce that slowly but surely ASUS is moving up the ladder in terms of Government procurement because of it's superb performance and affordable price. Even the Eeebook series that's blessed with a 1.33 GHz Intel Atom quad-core processor with Intel Burst Technology up to 1.83 GHz, is a worthy possession if you are a serial multitask-er. The 2 GB DDR3 system memory ensures Uber-cool silky performance, even on the move. Seems like this in indeed a gadget freak's treasured possession.

Visual Impact: Another very very important aspect is the display, because we, the consultants totally en-cash on "eye-contact". Kidding. The point is, the ASUS Eeebook series presents a crystal clear and crisp visual impression..the 11.6 inch display is indeed a treat to the eye; I'm dying to watch AVATAR in HD just to corroborate with the stats. Seems like a delicious prospect this.
