Ultra Slim Asus Eee PC Model S101 high-end notebook. (Credit: HardwareZone.com)

Yesterday, Asus International added another fashionable high-end notebook to its extensive line of Eee PCs—the ultra-slim S101.  This one, however, is a bit different and is actually quite appealing.

The Eee PC S101 will come in three colors, brown, champagne or graphite with premium Infusion finishes and crystal-adorned hinges offerng a successful melding of fashion and functionality on a notebook. The incredibly slim notebook boasts a closed height of only 0.7 inches and a weight of only  2.2 pounds making it one of the lightest and thinnest notebooks available.

The Asus Eee PC S101 is powered by an Intel Atom processor (probably N270 1.6GHz), 1GB of DDR2 RAM. It features a Solid State Drive (SSD) up to 64GB in size for storage, a 10.2-inch LED-Backlit LCD display running at WSVGA (1024×600), 3 USB ports, VGA, Ethernet, audio jacks,  WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth, a 4-in-1 card reader, a multi-touch touchpad, and a 0.3 Megapixel webcam.

In comparison, Apple Macbook Air has only one USB port.  The only bad thing about the PC S101 in relation to the Macbook Air, is that the Air sports a Core 2 duo processor, while the S101 uses the ever popular Atom CPU.   Just like the Apple Air, the S101 has a non-replaceable 5 hour battery.  Five hours is great for many, but not allowing the use of a backup battery or when the battery fails in 2 years down the road, it surely is a turn off for others.

The S101 will be available in three versions as listed below:

  1. $699 – 16 GB SSD, Windows XP operating system, inclusive of an additional 16 GB SD card.
  2. $699 – 32 GB SSD, Linux operating system.
  3. $799 – 64 GB SSD, Linux operating system.

This may not be in the same class in terms of speed with the Applebook Air, but in terms of thickness, weight, and most importantly price – this baby matches and exceeds the Air. Good Day.
