The Asus Eee PC
Play • 49 min
The Asus Eee PC was introduced in June 2007, and quickly led to a surge in popularity for netbooks: small cheap laptops mostly designed for connecting to the internet. The new trend also caught Microsoft at the worst possible time, causing ripples in the PC industry that would last for years. Hosted by Corbin Davenport, guest starring Cody Toombs.
