ASUS Eee PC X101 ultrathin netbook, with MeeGo OS
The ASUS Eee PC X101 ultrathin netbook has been made official on the ASUS website. The Macbook Air-inspired design runs the MeeGo OS and, as expected, runs a single-core Intel Atom N435 1.33 GHz processor to help keep its price down below $200. Weighing in at under 2.3 pounds, the lightweight 10.1-inch netbook also comes light on storage with just 8GB of SSD storage on board.
It comes in three colors (red, white and brown) and is capable of achieving around four hours of battery life out of its 3-cell battery. Wireless connectivity is by way of an 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi radio and Bluetooth 3.0.
There is currently no sign on the ASUS site of the expected Windows 7 version at the time of writing. When it shows, it is expected to carry a price between $310 to $350.
