Asus R101 netbook quietly flies in

Will hopefully avoid the French landscape...

Build a business case: developing custom apps

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. ®
