Asus updates netbook line with Intel, AMD chippery

Small, cheap computers show Flare

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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. ®
