It doesn’t have the Asus brand name behind it, but it does come with a 12 month warranty, which is actually pretty decent for the $299 price tag.It runs linux, has a 7-inch screen and 1GB onboard memory. Wi-Fi isn’t built in, but the unit does come with a dongle to give you that joyous feeling only wireless internet can bring.
