The ASUS Eee PC (pronounced as the letter e, IPA /iː/) is a subnotebook computer designed by ASUS. At the time of its introduction, it was noted for its combination of a light weight, Linux-based operating system, solid-state drive and relatively low cost. Newer models have added the option of Windows XP operating system, traditional hard disk drives. Newer models have also increased in price, though they remain relatively inexpensive as laptops, and remarkably inexpensive for an ultra-small laptop.

According to ASUS, the name Eee derives from "the three Es," an abbreviation of its advertising slogan for the device: "Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to play". The device may fall into a newly defined category of netbooks. According to DigiTimes, it is manufactured by Pegatron Technology.

In the UK, the ASUS Eee PC is also distributed as the RM Asus Minibook by RM.
