Asus S101: The Ultimate Eee PC
With close to 30 different models for their Eee PC line, Asus is still on the roll and will soon launch the Asus S101 Ultimate Eee PC.
The new S101 Eee PC will ship with the latest Intel Atom 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, a 32GB or 64GB SSD, 10.2″ display screen and still weigh less than 1kg. of course, pricing will be greatly affected by the bump in SSD space — that’s $699 and $899, respectively (via).
With close to 3 dozen models in the EeePC line-up, I think Asus is already spreading the Eee brand to thin. The netbook models comes in various sizes from 7 inches to 10.2 with slight variations in storage and memory. The price points alone are too close to make distinctive a choice.
I believe that at the end of the day, the model that gives the most favorable price point (balance with the size and specs) will emerge as the top choice. All the rest will only gather dust in the shelves. So far, the Asus 901 is on top of mind.
