ASUS has added to the Eee PC range, with the Eee PC S101. The Eee PC S101 is available in 3 colours – Brown, Champagne or Graphite – each with crystal-adorned hinges. And under the cover the Eee PC S101 has a 10.2 inchwide active matrix LED-backlit display which is capable of running at WSVGA resolution.

Building upon the ground-breaking form factor, ergonomics and features of its Eee PC predecessors, the Eee PC S101 incorporates incredible portability. Weighing a featherlike 1 kg and measuring a svelte 1.8 cm, the Eee PC S101 integrates enhanced features such as the ASUS exclusive Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) and Eee Storage, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth V2.0.

The Eee PC S101 equipped with the energy saving SHE, allocates power according to users preferences and accurately detects users power requirements and makes the necessary power adjustments – preserving its battery life. Moving further forward, the Eee PC S101 has added various storage solutions for storing and accessing important documents. Its head-turning and handy highlights complement progressive features including shockproof solid state drive (SSD), 4-in-1 flash card reader that supports MMC, SD, Memory Stick and MS-PRO, and an encrypted 20GB internet storage facility aptly named Eee Storage.

Also equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11n enabling high speed internet access and Bluetooth V2.0 ensures fast and convenient connectivity. The Eee PC S101 is available with Microsoft Windows XP Home (in Australia and New Zealand) offering users with moderate to substantial computing experience more configuration avenues and a wider spread of applications. The inclusion of Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Mail ensures that all of the users communication needs are fully met and the inclusion of Microsoft Works allows users the ability to work efficiently while out of the office.
