ASUS Eee PC S101 To Launch in U.S. for $699

We knew we would be hearing from our U.S. based ASUS representative to confirm the landing of the S101 on our home soil. According to ASUS the S101 will launch on November 1 and will be priced at $699. A bit steep for a netbook, huh? But instead of those simple looking Eee PCs you are used to, the cash buys you a fashionable case available in brown, champagne and graphite colors.  Now the real question is when do you get an $699 ASUS N10 versus a Eee PC S101? We hope to answer that question when we finally get review units of both. Updated: The champagne color  and the Linux OS will not be available in the U.S. See the complete specs of the new Eee PC S101 netbook after the jump. The S101 will be available in limited quantities at launch. Eee PC S101- $699

    Is it certain that the Linux version will not be made available in the US?

  3. Marcus Orlando Says:

    Please confirm whether the Linux version is coming to the US or not. Love to have 32GB SSD without splitting between SD and SSD for Windows XP!
