Asus $199 MeeGo netbook out next month
Eee PC 701 successor at last?
Asus announced its MeeGo-based netbook, the 10in Eee PC X101 , earlier this month, but said little else about the specs. Now a few tech details have emerged.
The X101 - due out next month, apparently - will be based on Intel's Atom N435, the chip giant's new, single-core CPU running at 1.33GHz.
It'll have an 8GB SSD, expandable using Micro SD cards; 2GB of memory; 2.4GHz 802.11n and Bluetooth; and a pair of USB 2.0 slots.
Don't expect much in the way of battery life: the X101 will come with a three-cell power pack.
Low storage capacity and low battery capacity make for a low price: the Eee PC X101 will retail for around $199 (£125) , says DigiTimes. ®
