It wouldn't be Computex without another Eee PC announcement and today's is a big one. ASUS officially introduced the next-generation of Eee PC, the X101:
The X101 weighs under 950g and is only 17.6mm thick.
The X101 is presumably Atom based and it will be available either with a HDD or SSD. The default configuration will ship with MeeGo and start at $199.

iwod - Monday, May 30, 2011 - linkIntel said their next gen 32nm Atom will cost 30 - 40% less. Which is a good thing since they are too expensive for what they are used anyway.
But will this new X101 be using 32nm Atom? Dual Core? Or am i asking a bit too much for $199. :P
Andrew Rockefeller - Monday, May 30, 2011 - linkAt 1.5GHz, the N550 is a good guess:
The Z670 is the only other 1.5GHz Atom, but I suspect it'd be woefully inappropriate:
Andrew Rockefeller - Monday, May 30, 2011 - linkEdit: Ppl are reporting that it's an N435 (yet to be released)
Kristian Vättö - Monday, May 30, 2011 - linkWe may see an updated Atom lineup in Q3. That would just be a change in clocks though with possible price cuts. 32nm Atoms will come in 2012 IIRC.
Alien959 - Monday, May 30, 2011 - linkMy question is about size-capacity of the battery. I hope they use big enough battery I expect at list 9+ hours on this thing or am I aking too much for 199$. :)
tipoo - Monday, May 30, 2011 - linkOak trial is meant to be a low power part for tablets, isn't it? I wonder how its performance compares to Atom's made for netbooks?
Shadowmaster625 - Wednesday, June 1, 2011 - linkIf you have an old copy of xp laying around will you be able to buy this for 199 and put xp on it without any issues?
