Looks like Asus is gonna beat Apple to the punch by announcing a super-thin notebook (to compete with the Macbook Air) that sports a Core i7 processor. The Asus UX21 was revealed at Computex Taiwan yesterday.
This 11.6 incher is only 17mm thin at its thickest base, exactly the same as the Macbook Air, with a total weight of just 2.4lbs.
Other specs include an SSD storage, 4GB RAM, USB 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, BluetoothAsus promises up to 7 hours battery life on this device. Expect the Asus UX21 to be pretty expensive and will probably come near the price of the Mac Air.
