ASUS N Series Netbook Leak

ASUS is gearing up for a new netbook that would borrow some aspects of larger notebooks, say alleged contacts in the distribution chain for the company's native Taiwan. The N series would have a 10.2-inch LCD like the Eee PC 1000 or the upscale S101 and would still use an Intel Atom processor, but would be capable of running Windows Vista and carry up to a 320GB hard drive versus the 80GB maximum of most netbooks.

If accurate, the report would have the first ASUS N ship in September and potentially disrupt the netbook business by undercutting the prices of 8.9- and 10-inch notebooks: the costs for the N would vary between $478 and $637 depending on trim level. Other details are unavailable, though the Atom is likely to be clocked at 1.6GHz while RAM is likely to range between 1GB or 2GB based on Vista's requirements.
