Asus has launched a press portal for the Eee PC S101 laptop. You know, the one aimed at “social elites.” The site featues video, specs for the netbook, and a bunch of pretty pictures.

You can also see a list of product launch dates. Just scroll your mouse over the launch schedule on the left side of the screen and you’ll see a list of dates. Hover over a date and you’ll see where Asus plans to launch the Eee PC S101 that day or month.

It looks like there should be a Korean launch today, an event in Singapore tomorrow, and something in Spain next week. Noticably absent from the list? The US.

The Asus Eee PC S101 features a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel screen, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, and 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of solid state memory (I believe this is the first official confirmation I’ve seen that a 64GB model will be available). The netbook costs more than most other Eee PC models, with a starting price of around $699. But it’s also the thinnest and lightest Asus netbook to date, at just about 2.2 ponds and measuring just an inch thick.

Update: Looks like we have a US launch date: Oct 21st.

  1. Ummm … the 101 was in J&R this past weekend. I lightly fondled it. The keyboard has harder feedback than the 1000. I didn’t like the entire unit at all. And when I heard it was $700 for an ATOM CPU, I LMAO. Which the J&R staff did not appreciate.

    I didn’t even bother to take crapcam pics. The idea of a $700 ATOM unit is just ridiculous.

  2. I wish they would bring out a scruffy looking version for the antisocial unelite.

    …or at least bring out _something_ for the whole western hemisphere.

    1. They must have seen my post! …or this article. Still no scruffy model, but they’re added a US date on the map! 21 Oct 08

      They’ve also added Japan and Korea.
