The Asus Eee PC X101 will be projected as an alternative to that category of small laptops.
Asus has stated that the X101 is going to become successor of the Netbook, it you go comparison, the latest venture from Asus is thinner and lighter than a traditional Netbook at 0.69-inches and two pounds.
Next thing it is powered by the MeeGo Linux, not with the popular Windows, however MeeGo is more suited to ultra small designs that typically don’t pack the horsepower to run Windows 7 efficiently, apart from that the company has also added a consolidated MyZone social networking hub and put it directly into the Cloud services such as @Vibe and Cloud storage.
They have also removed the VGA and Ethernet ports to design the X101 into its new ultra-slim profile, and a quick comparison could be made to Chromebooks offered by Samsung and Acer, but those are at least $150 more and come with Google’s Chrome OS, which is essentially the Chrome browser.
This latest gadget is equipped with 10.1-inch LED display, Intel Atom N435 or N455 processor, 1GB of memory, 8GB solid-state drive, Bluetooth, camera, two USB 2.0 ports, and four-hour battery life (3-cell standard).
Asus will also offer a model of X101H with Windows 7 Starter that has more storage and keeps the Ethernet and VGA ports, however it will not be super sleek.
