Asus Eee PC S101

The Asus S101 has only just been launched but it looks like mobilecomputermag are way ahead of the curve with this review. They’ve also got a huge selection of images for Asus fans to drool over.

Here’s some of the highlights from the S101 review:

  • Price £449 - or there abouts
  • 32GB SSD with the Linux variant and 16Gb with Windows
  • At just under 1.1kg, it’s lighter than both the Eee PC 1000 and even the Eee PC 901
  • The S101’s keyboard is identical to that on the Eee PC 1000 – same width, same key shape and size, same amount of travel
  • A large touchpad, colour-matched to the lid, sitting in the expanse of brushed metal wrist-rest seemed to catch the reviewers eye
  • Battery life - 3 hours and forty-five minutes under heavy load, and just over five hours in light-use

All in all, the reviewers over at mobilecomputingmag gave this latest netbook a big thumbs up. Ok, it’s a little pricey for a netbook but you remember that this is a high end device - if you want quality expect to pay for it.
