ASUS Santa Rosa laptops

Wholesaler ComputersPlus has secured four new ASUS laptops (not pictured) to sell to vendors; the interesting point is that they are based on Intel's "Santa Rosa" platform, which has only just begun to be adopted by third parties. The two most attractive systems are likely to be the S62E and the S96S, which are 14.1- and 15.4-inch systems, using new Core 2 Duo processors rated at 2.0, 2.2 or 2.4GHz. More importantly, front-side bus speeds have been raised for Santa Rosa from 667MHz to 800MHz.

Two of the systems, including the S62E and S37E, use Intel's new GM965 motherboard, which only supplies graphics through an integrated GMA X3100 chipset. The S96S and the S37S are allowed dedicated graphics courtesy of the PM965. The S37 laptops are both sized at 13.3 inches, and feature different processors; due to their configurations though, they are priced at $567 for the E and $627 for the S. The S62E and S96S are $436 and $526. [via Laptoping]
