Asus Eee PC S101 officially unveiled

Back in the mists of time, well August, Asus let the world know they were planning an "ultimate" Eee PC. Called the S101 it'd gazump the whi

The S101 crams in the usual Intel Atom processor and an Eee PC 1000 series–matching 10.2in screen. That's where the comparisons end though. Because inside you get a weighty 64GB SSD and a decent 2GB of RAM.

That should make this appealing to punters who want something with more grunt and space to stash spreadsheets and PowerPoint docs. However, there is a price to pay, with plans to set the cost at around £400. That's about the same as the HP Mini–Note and kind of defeats the object of these cheap netbooks.
