Asus is introducing a new line of low-cost 11.6 inch notebooks… at least in Germany. Amazon Germany is showing product pages for a number of new portable notebooks in the new Asus F201E family, with prices starting at 299 Euros.
That’s about $387 US, but it’s not yet clear whether these laptops will be sold in the US.
There are basically three different models, but Amazon has nearly a dozen product pages because Asus is offering a number of different color options including black, white, red, and blue.
All the models feature 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron 847 processors which should offer better-than-Atom performance while helping keep the price tag low.
Here are the options:
- 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, Ubuntu Linux for 299 Euros
- 2GB of RAM, 320GB hard drive, Windows 8 for 329 Euros
- 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, Windows 8 for 359 Euros
Each model shows an expected release date of October 26th — even the Ubuntu Linux models. October 26th is when Microsoft Windows 8 officially goes on sale around the world.
