ASUS Eee PC Flare to mark late netbook era at CES
ASUS has given a tease of the full strategy for the Eee PC 1200 series with renders and details of how they'll appear at CES. Now called the Eee PC Flare, the netbooks will have curvier designs colored almost end-to-end, with black, blue, red, and purple wrapping around the entire body. They should have a MacBook-style hinge that brings the display behind the base as well as a chiclet keyboard and a 'stealth' trackpad.
Inside, the systems are already known to have picks of different processors. The 12-inch 1225B will run on AMD's Fusion platform, while the similarly sized 1225C would use the more familiar Intel Cedar Trail line of Atom chips. More conventional netbooks would come in the form of the 10-inch Eee PC 1025C and 1025CE.
The systems don't have many definitive release details. ASUS typically rolls out new PCs over the course of a few months with regional details arriving on a country-by-country basis. [via Notebook Italia]
