According to Asus claims, the machine weighs even less than a kg and specs are better than Apple’s MacBook Air.
So far specs are concerned; the S101 has an Intel Atom processor and Intel 945 Express graphics, an integrated four-in-one card reader, 3 USB ports , easily changeable battery( with a good lifespan of five hours), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a nice RJ-45 Ethernet socket.
Now lets talk about the size (it does matter!), the S101 is 18-25mm thick with a multitouch trackpad and a 10.2-inch 1024×768 high resolution screen. The thing that makes it somewhat inferior is an underwhelming 0.3-megapixel webcam.
The S101 will be available in Windows XP Home versions as well as in two Linux versions.
Some reports seem to suggest that the keyboard of the S101 is somewhat better than the currently available batch of netbooks and it can prove a sales tipping point for many.
The fashion savvies will find the S101 in a wide range of colours including graphite, brown and champagne. The S101 will be available in early November with a price tag of £449.
