The Asus EeeBook E202 is budget laptop with an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and an Intel Braswell processor.

Asus introduced the little laptop at the Computex trade show in June. This week it passed through the FCC website, which could be a sign that the Asus EeeBook E202 is coming to America soon.

Asus hasn’t announced the price for the notebook yet, but since it’s part of the EeeBook family, it’ll likely be cheap: The Asus EeeBook X205TA currently sells for $200 or less.

The demo unit on display at Computex featured an Intel Pentium N3700 quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. But according to a listing I found at the Energy Star website, it looks like Asus may also have a model with an Intel Celeron chip. I wouldn’t be surprised if entry-level models also have less RAM or storage than the demo unit shown at Computex.

The laptop also features a micro HDMI port, a microSD card slot, a full-sized USB 3.0 port, and a full-sized USB 2.0 port. Interestingly, it also has a USB Type-C port and a separate charging port, suggesting that the reversible USB-C port will be used for connecting accessories and not for charging the laptop.

According to the FCC and Energy Star pages, there are a few different model numbers for this laptop, including E202S, R206S, and L202S. It’s not clear if all three models have identical specs or not.

  1. Is it true the USB 3.1 is really just basically another 3.0 in another name with a different form factor? They state the Type-C is Gen 1 and I’ve heard there’s only a speed increase in Gen 2. So what would it possibly matter to use it for?

  2. I’ve been waiting for this E202 since it was announced at computex… glad it’s finally coming

  3. I’m actually always happy when companies make cheap laptops with HDDs, instead of eMMC. That means I can swap out the drive for a 2.5″ SSD.

    The Acer E11 or ES1 was my goto recommendation for a cheap laptop for that reason alone. With 4gb ram, and an SSD, its a pretty decent machine.

  4. This is the computer that is finally going to replace my eee 1000h..will get the hdd versión an replace it with a propper ssd..not that 32gb emmc crap

  5. I”m gonna put my money on that USB C connector not being 3.1 but rather 3.0.
    I could see them pushing an n3000 or n3050 for the $180 mark or so with 2GB and the n3700 with 4GB around the $250 mark or so.

    1. You’re right, its going to be USB 3.0. The Intel N3700 doesn’t even support USB 3.1

      1. But they could, in theory, use some third party chip to support it. This is very commonly done to add more support to a product than is built into the main chip. I just don’t think that will be the case here.

        1. You’re right, but I also doubt it is the case here. Mostly because it would be a big added expense (in parts and design) to add a feature that they didn’t even bother to mention.

      1. We’ll see. I’ve read lots of stuff on product pages. I wouldn’t use that info to place a bet though. Wouldn’t be the first time the marketing people had no idea about the actual product.

  6. and word on the sweet looking eeebook 403 that they were also showing?

        1. it’s an eMMC and the speed is just as crappy as a normal HDD. the only advantage it’s got over HDDs is just drop proof… but you get like less than 1/10 of the storage space

          1. Emmc may not be as fast as regular SSDs, but it still shares the property of being way faster than mechanical for small read/writes, which is important.

            Though whilst I much prefer the emmc in my T100, I don’t think it’s right that every low cost laptop should be like this – some people are less bothered by the speed, and would rather have more disk space.
