While the world shook its head in wonder last year when Microsoft decided to launch a brown colored Zune music player last year, apparently the color is catching on with other electronics makers. Asus is putting out at least two new netbooks with a 70s style brown facade.
Hardware Zone reports that the high end Eee PC S101 will be available in brown, champaign or graphite. This model sports a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, an Intel Atom CPU, and a 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB solid state disk. Prices range from $699 for the 16GB (Windows XP) or 32GB (Linux) models to $799 for the 64GB (Linux) model.
If you’re looking for something a bit cheaper, Blogeee has obtained photos of an upcoming brown colored Eee PC 901. This brown looks a bit deeper and has a more metallic sheen to it than the S101 brown. But it’s still brown. The Eee PC 901 comes in Windows XP and Linux varieties and is typically priced around $480 to $500.
