Asus R101 netbook quietly flies in

Will hopefully avoid the French landscape...

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Asus is gearing up to release its latest Eee PC netbook, and we hope it fares rather better than its namesake.

Details posted online by a German retailer reveal that the Eee PC R101 is based on Intel's 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, comes with 1GB of 800MHz DDR 2 memory and a 250GB hard drive, and has the customary 10in, 1024 x 600 display.

Asus Eee PC R101... and infamous namesake

The screen is driven by the GMA 3150 graphics core built into the Atom CPU. The netbook also sports a striking carbon-fibre look.

Ominously, the machine shares its name with the ill-fated British airship built at Cardington near Bedford and which plunged into the French countryside on its 1929 maiden voyage, bursting into a hydrogen-fuelled inferno and killing 48 passengers and crew - more lives lost than the Hindenburg disaster. ®
