Asus Tries to Resurrect the Netbook with 10-Inch 1015E Going for $300 | GadgeTell. My recent weekend without my Windows 8 notebook computer was okay; I didn't have any trouble getting email, and keeping up with the social media sites, and my blogs, and my newspapers on my Note II Samsung phone, and my Nexus 7 tablet. However, the full keyboard on my notebook would have come in handy for blogging, and is much more efficient for creating content. However, it is 5 pounds, and I don't like carrying it to strange locations. Plus, if I really need something on it, I just connect remotely. This $300 netbook from ASUS, however, at a svelte 2.8 pounds, might make it into my carry bag next trip. A fast enough processor, plenty of RAM, and a functioning keyboard, are pretty compelling. It also sports Windows 8 and a 320 Gig hard drive, which is plenty of room to serve as a back up system. Is there a netbook in your future?
