As mentioned earlier today, Asus is preparing to launch a mini-notebook with a 10.2 inch screen that will not be part of the Eee PC lineup. Now French site Blogeee has what appear to be exclusive pictures of the upcoming laptop, dubbed the Asus N10.
Here’s what I can glean from the images:
- The Eee PC branding is nowhere to be seen.
- The PC has an attractive silver and black case, with a rather glossy looking lid. It remains to be seen whether this is just a cosmetic change, or whether the build quality has been affected (the N10 bears a tiny resemblance to the HP Mini-Note, which is the strudiest feeling netbook I’ve used so far).
- I spot a VGA port, an Ethernet, a card reader, and 3 USB ports, a webcam. There’s also another port on the right side that I can’t quite make out.
This laptop is expected to cost somewhere between $477 and $637 and could be available in September.
