ASUS S101 netbook press shots and review

Posted October 7th, 2008 at 10:10 PM by Sniper

This ASUS S101 high-end netbook looks slick, I must admit. It features an 10.2 inch LED backlit screen, 0.3MB webcam, integrated bluetooth, the newer Wi-fi 802.11n draft, 16 GB Solid State Drive and an estimated battery life of 5 hours (with Wi-fi off and brightness lowered) or 3 hours and forty-five minutes during heavy use (read the review). The price should start from €599 ($816) in Europe.

“High-end netbook” might sound like an oxymoron, not least because the whole point of these little mobile internet devices was for them to be low-cost and low-power. The thinking at Asus, however, is that the S101 will appeal to people who have so far been put off buying an Eee PC because of its ‘built to a budget’ appearance, and in that respect, the S101 is a big success – it’s gorgeous.
