It seems like netbook manufacturers generally aren’t too concerned about specs and pictures of upcoming models leaking out ahead of time. Well, maybe Sony, but apart from that it’s become pretty common for us to see new models pictured and detailed well ahead of their public launch.

Not so with the ASUS Eee PC 1218, however. Not familiar with the model? That’s not surprising. There’s really no information floating around about it. And yet somehow the sleek, aluminum-clad netbook has received a Red Dot Design Award.

…And because of that, you can now see what it looks like. However, apart from the image above (and two more after the break) details are sparse right now.

  1. Wow, I’m not sure how convinient having all the ports on the back of the laptop will be (including audio, really?), but boy howdy that looks like a thin computer. Can’t wait to find out more.
