Asus is reportedly working on a new thin and light netbook that will be called the Eee PC Shell. According to DigiTimes, the Shell will have a 10.1 inch display, and higher specs than the Eee PC S101. It will reportedly also have better battery life, and be easier to carry. No, I have no idea what that last bit means either.

The netbook is due out in April and will reportedly be available for the equivalent of $486 to $571 in Taiwan. No word on whether this model will make it to the west or how much it will cost if  and when it’s available outside of Taiwan.

The Asus Eee PC S101 is probably one of the best looking members of the Eee PC family, thanks to its slim profile and emphasis on style and design. But it doesn’t have the same kind of battery life you can get from cheaper models like the Eee PC 1000HE.
