ASUS S101 Official

ASUS on Friday began formally releasing details for the S101, its first upscale netbook. The PC builder characterizes the 10.2-inch portable as both a designer item with brown, champagne gold and graphite gray outer shells but also gives it features that would previously have been considered off-limits to some netbooks, ranging from solid-state storage up to 64GB, 802.11n Wi-Fi and a four-in-one card reader. A 1.6GHz Atom and 1GB of memory are its key ties to regular netbooks in the class.

As with some more mainstream Eee PC models, the models are split by operating system and storage. The lone Windows XP system costs $699 and carries 16GB of internal storage plus a 16GB SD card that can be merged or used as removable space. A same-price Linux version sheds the SD card in return for housing 32GB of flash entirely on its own. At $799, a second Linux edition carries the full 64GB of memory.

ASUS hasn't said when S101 examples should reach stores. [via HardwareZone]

    Best Netbook

    We may have found the ultimate netbook here. It's somewhere between a notebook and a netbook. Maybe we could call it a NOTbook.
    We expect these in stock for the holidays. Can't wait to see one up close.
