Asus teases with MacBook Air-esque Eee PC

Super skinny netbook inbound?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Asus looks set to take the fight to Apple's 11in MacBook Air with an ultra-skinny Eee PC netbook, due to be announced next week at the Computex show in Taipei.

The Asian PC maker's Facebook page teases a slimline Eee - the line's "next evolution", apparently - but Italian-language site Notebook Italia has a snap of what the silhouette figure really looks like:

Artist's impression or real photo, official or unofficial - it's hard to be sure. The NI pic doesn't look quite right to us, but it certainly matches what Asus has posted.

NI speculates that the new Eee won't necessarily run Windows, but it offers no evidence for that claim. Whatever, it'll make a nice Ubuntu machine.

Guess we'll find out next week... ®
