| The Asus Eee S101, a high-end addition to Asus' netbook range has been
| photographed - and priced for the UK market.

| has a 10.2-inch LED backlit display and will be available running either
| Windows XP or GNU Linux.

| For reasons unknown, netbook manufacturers (on the whole, at least) have been
| asking ridiculous sums of money for their wares, but now that the novelty of
| the sector is wearing off, we're seeing those figures start to head south.
| Following in Acer's footsteps, ASUS has evidently lowered the entry price for
| its Fine Ebony / Pearl White Eee PC 901 to $499.99.


4 new mini-laptops -- which is smallest, lightest, best?

| While Windows is an option on most models, Linux is the operating system of
| choice because of its low cost and modest hardware requirements.
