ASUS Eee PC X101 and UX21 Series at Computex 2011
ASUS Eee PC X101 and UX21 Series at Computex 2011 – The Computex Taipei will officially open today, but Asus has announced a preview of two new and exciting products for the mobile market. This is the ASUS UX21 , an ultra high-end, and the new Eee PC X101 with which the Taiwanese company has decided to revolutionize the field of netbook .
The items published last week on the Facebook page have partially revealed the Eee PC would integrate an operating system other than Windows. In fact, the netbook is based on MeeGo , born from the merger of Intel’s Moblin and Maemo, Nokia.
The hardware includes an Intel Atom N435 with GMA 600 graphics subsystem, display 10.1 inches with a resolution of 1,024 × 600 pixels, two USB ports, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, webcam, microphone and battery with six double cells. The shape of a “wedge” has allowed us to increase the size of the touchpad and to reduce the thickness to 17.6 mm at thinnest part.
The weight of the netbook is just 950 grams. The Eee PC X101 will be available in white, black and red at a price of $ 199 . There is also the version of Windows 7 and X101H with hybrid hard drive.
The UX21 is instead an ASUS notebook with ultra-thin frame of aluminum alloy and based on the second generation of Intel Core processors. The model shown at Computex integrates a Core i5-2557M 1.7 GHz, but you can also choose a more powerful Core i7. The operating system is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, combined with a software that allows the ASUS boot in seconds.
Are not yet known details and specifications. From the pictures you can see, however, a mini DisplayPort, a mini HDMI port and a USB 3.0 port. The touchpad is very large and made of glass, while storage is installed on a SSD SATA 6 Gbps . The ASUS Eee PC X101 and UX21 Series at Computex 2011 will come on the market in September.
