We are confident that with this latest offering from ASUS customers will be able to enjoy a computing experience with a unique sense of style.”
Fashion-on-the-go Made Eeeasy
With its elegant styling and slender profile, the Eee PC™ S101 cuts a striking profile that complements any sartorial ensemble. Its unique colors emanate confidence, success and dynamism, and its incredible portability—weighing a mere 1 kg and svelter than most fashion magazines at just 1.8 cm—enables users to carry themselves with effortless grace, without the slouching and strain that often plagues users of regular notebooks. Its fantastic slimness, which has an uncanny ability to snare attention, enables it to tuck easily into most bags.
Substance in Equal Measure
Its head-turning looks and astounding portability aside, the Eee PC™ S101 is equally impressive in terms of features. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11n, enabling high speed Internet access virtually anywhere. It also features Bluetooth V2.0, ensuring fast and convenient connectivity with a vast range of Bluetooth-enabled devices.
Every Eee PC™ S101 comes with an encrypted 20 GB Internet storage facility known as Eee Storage, allowing users to store and subsequently access their important documents and media securely whenever, wherever. The Eee S101 will be available two variants - a 16GB solid state drive and a 160 GB hard disk drive model. Rounding off the Eee PC™ S101’s comprehensive storage capabilities is an integrated 4-in-1 flash card reader that supports more formats than other Eee PC™ models. The supported flash memory types are MMC, SD, Memory Stick and MS-PRO.
The Eee PC™ S101 is also equipped with a vibrant 10.2” wide active matrix LED-backlit display which is capable of running at WSVGA resolution, thus providing more-than-ample space for viewing documents and perusing other media.
Long Four-hour Battery Life with Super Hybrid Engine
The Eee PC™ S101 features the exclusive Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) which greatly enhances its energy efficiency, letting users enjoy longer battery life per charge—enabling up to five hours of continuous use—thus eliminating the need to lug power adapters along with them. SHE also offers a choice of performance and power consumption modes that allow users to make quick and easy adjustments to suit their usage scenarios.
Familiar Operating System
Catering to users across the full spectrum of experience levels, the Eee PC™ S101 is available with either Microsoft® Windows® XP Home edition operating system. The Microsoft Windows version offers users with moderate to substantial computing experience with more configuration avenues and a wider spread of applications. The incorporation of Windows Live™ Messenger and Windows Live Mail ensures that all of the user’s communication needs are fully met, and the inclusion of Microsoft Works equips the user with the ability to work efficiently while out of the office.
