Asus gets new girl as Eee lass makes Mac move

High performance access to file storage

Asus' famous Eee PC beach babe has met her match: a new lass snapped with the Small, Cheap Computer maker's N10 notebook-not-netbook.

Perhaps in a fit of pique, the original Eee girl - who has already seen off several pretenders to her position as the world's best-known portable PC user - has been spotted enjoying the pleasures of Apple's MacBook.

Asus' recent local launch of the N10 was widely reported by tech titles. But we were shocked to see a new face being used to show off the svelte Intel Atom-based Windows Vista machine:

Given the old Eee-ve ho?

She didn't stay around, especially after being rejected by Reg Hardware readers. Will the N10 nymph prove to have more staying power? Maybe, if the following pic, spotted by reader David Viner on website Clearance Sale Alerts:

Treachery! Asus' Eee girl... with a MacBook

That's clearly a white Apple MacBook that's edged out her old Eee PC - has she shifted her allegiance from Linux to OS X, we wonder? Or was the Asus offering simply too small to truly satisfy? We demand an answer.
