First thing’s first. This picture would be a lot more informative if I knew how big that coin really is. Anyone know what denomination of currency this is and want to let me know how large it would be next to say, a US quarter? That said, there’s no denying that the recently launched Asus Eee PC S101 is thin and sexy as all get-out. Update: Loks like that’s an $NT 10 coin, which is just about 2mm larger than a US quarter. Thanks non!
Engadget Chinese recently got their hands on an S101 and shot a few pictures that show just how thin this high end Eee PC model is. Not that the original Eee PC 701 was a fatty at 1.4 inches thick. But the S101 is just 1.1 inches thick at its widest, and Asus has used a few visual tricks to make the high-end netbook look even thinner.
Engadget reports that the S101 could be available in the Asia-Pacific region as early as tomorrow, while Asus will launch the netbook in Europe in a few weeks and the US later this month.
