The Eee PC family may have put mini-notebooks on the map, but when an ASUS representative swung by our office this afternoon, he had in tow a small, lightweight, 10-inch notebook that he stated (on multiple occasions) was a “notebook, not a netbook.” Although, spec-wise, there are quite a few similarities to those lovable, huggable mini-notebooks, the upcoming ASUS N10 (set to arrive at the end of September) packs some features you won’t find in an Eee PC. Let’s look at the specs, shall we? We’re told that N10 will come in two main configurations, the N10E and the N10J. The lower-cost N10E starts at $599, while the higher-end N10J will go for $699 and include switchable graphics, and a larger hard drive for the extra money. Specs are as follows:
Not too shabby.
