A week ago an Asus Eee Roadmap was leaked that showed a new S101 and S91 netbook in the Ultimate segment. At an event in Taiwan Asus' CEO showed off productions samples of the Asus S101 and revealed that Asus will go to market with the Asus S101 without the Eee PC moniker.
They rather target the premium lightweight notebook sector with the S101. The Asus S101 is 16-21mm thin and Asus actually set its eyes on competing with Apple's Macbook Air.
The Asus S101 would have a 10.2 inch, Intel Atom N270 at 1.6GHz and 32 GB / 64 GB SSD storage. Pricing of the S101 would be $699 and $899 with a release date of mid-September.
