Asus planning 12" S101 high-end ultra-thin laptop

Computers, Laptops / Notebooks

ASUS-S101.jpgOriginally, the S101 wasn’t planned to be part of Asus’ Eee PC netbook range, but it was shoehorned in at the last minute because the company wanted a high-end Eee. The S101 features a 10.2″ screen, but it looks like the Taiwanese company are planning an ultra-thin 12″ model, too.

The new machine will have a 16:10 aspect ratio, and very similar specs to the S101. ‘Sources’ reckon that the machine could be out as soon as before the end of the year. Thankfully, though, the company aren’t planning to stick an Eee badge on this one – the company president has said that he won’t call anything with a larger-than-10″ screen a netbook.

  • I do hope that this arrives before Dell’s re-jigged and rebranded M1330 revision arrives. It could help drive the price of the other pocket rocket down if the Asus is packing equal ‘heat’ at an attractive price.
