Asus adds “instant on” to its latest netbooks
One of the most impressive features of ultrabooks such as the Asus Zenbook UX31 is their ability to resume from sleep nearly instantly. Now it looks like Asus is bringing a similar feature to its Intel Atom-powered netbooks.
Asus says you should also get about 21 days of sleep time while using Instant On, so the sleep mode isn’t exactly a battery killer.
The company is also adding a few other new apps to its latest netbooks including one called Smart Camera and another called Media Sharing, but the quick resume technology is the most impressive, since it’s the type of feature you normally find in significantly more expensive computers.
The Eee PC 1025C is expected to launch this month for about $299, while the 1025CE with a slightly faster processor is expected to run $319 and up.
