Asus R50a UMPC Now Available

by Reads (5,202)

Asus has finally made the R50a UMPC available. We first broke news of this UMPC in January after CES 2008. During the hands-on time we had with the R50a I could tell it was a solid UMPC with a nice design, but it seems the price is way more than expected.

Asus R50a specs:

  • Intel Atom 1.33GHz processor
  • 5.8-inch touchscreen
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB SSD
  • Windows Vista OS
  • Integrated 3G HSDPA
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

The R50a UMPC could be a great Internet travel companion, but its price tag is $1,839. Unfortunately I don’t think this is a good idea for Asus. If they lower the price then yes, but with all the Netbooks and Eee PC having a way cheaper price tag the R50a is a hard buy to justify. For more information check out Asus website.
