Asus plans to introduce 3sec boot-up to its netbooks

An application called the ‘Instant On’ is to be equipped on the latest Asus Netbooks waiting to be released, which will allow the computer to resume from sleep in just three seconds

Resuming back from sleep usually take a bit time in our Notebooks and Netbooks, but now Asus has equipped the ability to resume back in just three seconds on its Intel Atom powered Netbooks. This impressive feature has earlier been introduced on Ultrabooks such as the Asus Zenbook UX 31.

This new application called the ‘Instant On’ will be made available on the upcoming Eee PC 1025C and 1025CE Netbooks. Asus also promises that these Netbooks will be able to provide a sleep time of about 21 days with the help of the Instant On application.

So now sleep mode can also be quite similar to the concept of hibernating your device. This application will really prove to be a lot helpful to the users who uses their PC quite frequently but not all the time and also cannot spare much time in putting the device in sleep mode. They are really going to enjoy the benefits while travelling.

Apart from this application Asus also seems to be planning to release a few other new applications to its latest Netbooks which includes one called Smart Camera and another one called Media Sharing. However the Instant On being the most impressive among them as it is mainly available on expensive computers those have a very fast processor equipped with them.

The new Netbooks are expected to be released this month. The Eee PC 1025C will be made available at a price around $299 while the 1025CE with a slightly faster processor will be priced around $319. The price of the 1025CE might even exceed from the above figure.
