The Asus eeePC released in 2007 was a bit before its time. The first small netbook to be released in the West, it had a Linux based OS from Xandros, an SSD rather than an HDD and was low cost. Latter models were released with Microsoft Windows and a normal HDD. Production ended in 2013 with sales declining due the availability of tablets.
