CES 2012

Asus has formally outed its next netbook release: the Eee PC Flare series. The Flares are a long cry from the clunky, chunky SCCs of yore - even if the spec isn't.

Flare: Eee PC 1025C

Yes, we're talking 10.1in, 1024 x 600 display, Windows Starter 7, 1GB of memory, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, 100Mb/s Ethernet, VGA and USB 2.0 portage.

The Flares - the 1025C and 1025CE - look slim, but the snaps conceal the battery bulge beneath. The 1025C has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600 - the new model - while the 1025CE has the 1.86GHz Atom N2800.

They're joined by the 12.1in 1225B, based on a 1.6GHz, dual-core AMD E-450. The screen has a 1366 x 768 resolution, and there's 2GB of DDR 3 memory on board. You also get USB 3.0.

All three machines should go on sale shortly. No word on UK prices yet. ®
