And just when we thought Asus could no longer outdo itself in the Eee PC line, they’ll come up with a new model just to show off they’re still king of the netbooks. So they’re bringing out a thinner but a little expensive Asus Eee PC S101 Ultraslim Netbook.
Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz
10.2â€ wide active matrix LED-backlit TFT, WSVGA 1024 x 600
Genuine Windows XP Home/GNU Linux
1 GB DDR2 RAM
16GB, 32GB & 64GB SSD
20GB Eee Storage
4-in-1 MMC, SD, Memory Stick and MS-PRO card reader
0.3 megapixel webcam
Even at 10.2 inches, Asus maintained the weight at 1kg plus a 5-hour battery life. The 20GB Eee Storage is an Internet-based encrypted account (much like Box.net of Dell).
Since it’s using SSD though, they go a bit more expensive than usual.
â€¢ 16 GB SSD, Windows XP, inclusive of an additional 16 GB SD card: $699
â€¢ 32 GB SSD, Linux operating system: $699
â€¢ 64 GB SSD, Linux operating system: $799
Not sure how slim this could be but it will be somewhere between 18mm at it thinnest and 25mm at its thickest base. In comparison, the Macbook Air is 19.4mm at its thickest base.
