First Apollolake netbooks are here already. Meet the Asus Vivobook E12 E203NA and E203NAH which are powered by Intel Celeron N3350 and Pentium N4200 processors respectively. Both E203NA and E203NAH are otherwise quite similar netbooks but there is one more key difference between the two – E203NA has eMMC SSD storage while the E203NAH has traditional hard disk drive.
Asus Vivobook E12 specs include 11.6” HD display, 500GB / 1TB HDD or 32/64/128GB eMMC storage, 2GB RAM (upgradable to 4GB), Intel integrated graphics, VGA web camera, 2 Cells 38 Whrs Polymer Battery and windows 10 or endless OS.
Port selection includes 1x COMBO audio jack, 2x Type A USB3.0 (USB3.1 GEN1), 1x Type C USB3.0 (USB3.1 GEN1), 1x HDMI, 1X AC adapter plug and 1x micro SD card. It weighs 0.98kg and offers battery life of 10 hours. The hard disk model is slightly thicker and heavier.
The display has 45% NTSC so it will definitely not win any awards for color accuracy.
The Endless OS is nothing but a Ubuntu based Linux operating system made for developing countries in mind.
The hard disk version comes with a larger 42Wh battery but the battery life will be same as hard disk sucks more power than SSD.
Apollolake is growing fast in terms of popularity. Just yesterday, we wrote about an apollolake mini PC which had similar specs to this Asus netbook.
