Essentially, it brings the looks of the new, business–friendly Eee PC with the spec sheet of a regular 1000 series machine. That means there's an Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB HDD, rather than the SSD and bulkier memory of the S101.
UK pricing is still up in the air, but with a €449 tag across the Channel, you can bet it'll come in at around £400, so fifty quid less than its similarly dressed sibling.
We'll be bringing you a review of the awesome S101 very soon, and remember you can be among the first UK punters to try out the new Asus Eee Top at Stuff Live this weekend. Tickets can still be nabbed from the official site.
