I’m at the Asus pre-CES press event in Las Vegas, and Asus CEO Jonney Shih just pulled out a slide with some details about the new Asus S121 notebook. It’s not exactly a netbook, but it’s pretty darn sexy. As previously noted the S121 looks like an Asus Eee PC S101 clone, but it features a 12.2 inch display which makes it a bit big to be a netbook. And now that we’ve had a glimpse of some of the other specs, I feel pretty confident in saying that the S101 will cost a lot more than most netbooks.
We’re talking a 512GB SSD (Asus says it’s the world’s first), 8 hours of battery life, and well… you can read the rest in the slide above.
More details, hopefully including the price, coming soon.
