The Eee S101 will be released in the US by November 1 and will be carrying a price tag of $699, according to Engadget.
What you get for that price is a new super-slim enclosure (a mere 0.75-inches thick) and some stylish accents, but the specs are pretty standard for the higher-end of netbooks. There’s an Atom N270 processor doing the heavy lifting, 1GB of RAM, a matte 10.2-inch 1024 x 600 LED-backlit display, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, multi-card reader, multi-touch touchpad, VGA webcam, 5.4 hours of quoted battery life (unlikely) and Windows XP.
I’m kind of not impressed by the S101. It seems like it’s just a prettified 1000H. Let’s just wait and see.
