Here are a few of the more interesting tidbits:
- Asus says 1 million Eee PCs have been sold since the product launched 5 months ago.
- The company believes the solid state disks are part of the key to the computer’s success. In other words, don’t go expecting a hard drive based model too soon.
- The new 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 display is purty.
- And you can take purty pictures with the new 1.3 megapixel webcam. Older units had a 0.3 megapixel camera.
- Goodbye “multi-touch,” hello “fingerglide.” Asus describes the new touchpad which can be manipulated with two fingers as “innovative,” even though it seems to be a pretty direct ripoff of the Macbook Air/iPhone interface.
Unfortunately there doesn’t appear to be a good picture in the press release, so I grabbed one for this post from Trusted Reviews. If you haven’t checked out their review yet, I highly recommend it. It’s choc full of good information.
