Asus S101 – Not an Eee PC?

Asustek Just over a week ago, an Asus Eee PC roadmap was leaked. Among the details mentioned were an Asus Eee PC S101, which has a 10.2-inch LED-backlit display

The S101 was listed as a part of Asustek’s “Ultimate Series”, with the description of “Exquisite / Extreme Slim & Light” and a target audience of “Elite, Travel explorer, Free” (you’ll have to excuse the translations).

Now it looks like there is a possibility that Asustek may drop the Eee PC moniker from the S101, and maybe the S91, (which, going by Asustek’s naming scheme, probably has an 8.9″ display). This is being done due to the higher price and the target audience.

Specifications of the S101
– Intel Atom
– 32GB or 64GB Solid State Drive (SSD)
– Potential price tag of around $699 and $899 USD
– 0.63 – 0.83 inches / 16 – 21mm thick
– Weight: 2.2 pounds / 1kg
– Brown and white colors
– May launch in October

Included are imagines of the S101 along with a current Eee PC 901.
