Asus may be preparing to launch a new mini-laptop, which Fudzilla reports will be called the Eee PC S101H. The company’s Eee PC S101 netbook is the thinnest netbook in the Eee PC line, and at 2.4 pounds, it’s the lightest netbook with a 10.2 inch display that Asus offers.
While there’s no official word on what features will make the Eee PC S101H different from the S101, the H would suggest that the new model will have a hard drive instead of a solid state disk. The Eee PC S101 is only available with an SSD at the moment.
It’s possible that Asus will be able to bring the price down a bit by offering a hard drive instead of a solid state disk. The Eee PC S101 is currently the most expensive member of the Eee PC family with a starting price of $699 (although bargain hunters can find it for a few bucks less on Amazon).
