The ASUS Eee PC continues to evolve. Today, ASUS announced the new Eee PC S101, its first netbook designed for fashion forward individuals who view style as as much of a factor of success as substance. The new S101 features a new case, available in Brown, Champagne or Graphite with delightful details such as premium Infusion finishes and crystal-adorned hinges.
The Asus Eee PC S101 will be powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor with Intel 945GSE chipset. It will come with a 10.2-inch WSVGA LED-backlit display, 1GB RAM, 16/32/64GB SSD options (all with 20GB of online Eee Storage), 802.11 n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, a 4-in-1 media reader, a multi-touch touchpad, a 0.3MP camera, and a 2450mAh battery. Versions running either Windows XP Home or Linux (with over 50 preinstalled applications that span learning, productivity and entertainment) will be offered. The ASUS Eee PC S101 measures 264 by 180.5 by 25 (at its thickest) millimeters (10.4 by 7.1 by 1-inches) and weighs 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds).
ASUS has yet to reveal pricing (but expected to fall in the USD$700 to USD$800 range) and availability.
