ASUS Eee PC 701The ASUS Eee PC ("Eee" is pronounced as "ee" in "see", IPA: /iː/) is a subnotebook / netbook computer designed by ASUS. At the time of its introduction in fall 2007, it was noted for its combination of a light weight, Linux-based operating system, solid-state drive and relatively low cost. Newer models have added the option of Windows XP operating system and traditional hard disk drives. Newer models have also increased in price, though they remain relatively inexpensive as laptops, and notably inexpensive for ultra-small laptops.

According to ASUS, the name Eee derives from "the three Es," an abbreviation of its advertising slogan for the device: "Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to play".
