Plenty of pics within.
Asus has finally gone ahead and given its S101 an official launch. Yes, we already knew it was coming, pretty much what it looked like and what specs it had, but that doesn’r mean we don’t want Asus’ word on the matter. And having some pictures not supplied by Mr BlurryCam to gander at is always good, too.
As per previous information, then, it’s confirmed that the S101 is aimed to be a better class of Eee PC, being both slimmer and lighter than the 901 and 1000-series systems. Contrary to earlier rumours (and the direction taken by the N10), though, the S101 is in fact still the Eee branding is still present, so the correct name is the Eee PC S101.
UK pricing and availability isn’t confirmed just yet, but rumour has it Asus is looking in the £400 region, some £30 more than the Eee PC 1000 launch price. Given the improved specs and looks that should be well worth stretching too.
We’ll be grabbing one of these from Asus as soon as we possibly can for a full review.
As promised, here’s a few images:
