Asus Eee PC S101

CNET
3 October 2009
  • Summary: Asus packs the same basic components found in other Netbooks into a stylish, slim chassis for a modest premium in price, but some unfortunate keyboard-layout compromises make the S101 harder to use than it should be.
  • Pros: Upscale brushed-metal design outshines other Netbooks; almost as slim as the MacBook Air.
  • Cons: More expensive than similar Netbook configurations; hard-to-use, tiny keyboard.

Asus EeePC S101

2 February 2009
  • Excerpt: After introducing the world to its cheap, dinky-looking, plasticshelled netbooks, Asus is turning its own game upside down with the EeePC S101. The latest variant in the never-ending Eee series comes in a new fashion-conscious design. This svelte device is less than an inch thick and has a sparkly metallic finish (brown, champagne or graphite) with a chrome trim and recessed status indicators.

ASUS Eee PC S101 (XP) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
23 October 2008
  • Summary: How much are you willing to pay for style? The Eee PC S101 ($699) is hands-down the best looking mini-notebook we have seen, and its thin size and small footprint make it a machine that you'll want to show off to the world. However, the chunkier but cheaper Eee PC 1000H ($479) features a longer-lasting six-cell battery and a much larger 160GB hard drive.

  • Summary: Overall it seems that Asus have created a dazzling netbook. Its battery life may only be three and a half hours, but it comes packed with ports and all the other gizmos you’d need. It may be slightly more expensive then its predecessors but unlike its predecessors this netbook has style, performance and an overall better rating.
  • Pros: Stunning design
  • Cons: Expensive for what it is

The sexy new netbook from ASUS.

14 September 2009
  • Summary: ASUS' latest Eee PC is a sleek and stylish unit that packs enough punch for basic tasks. The solid-state storage, premium finish and reasonable battery life are all excellent features, but the price is a little steep for a netbook.
  • Pros: Design, build quality, hybrid storage including SSD, decent battery life
  • Cons: Price, lack of Gigabit Ethernet port, right shift key too small

REVIEW: ASUS Eee PC S101

BCW
19 August 2009
  • Conclusion: ASUS has done a cracking job with the Eee PC S101 and it is undeniably the hottest, sleekest netbook on the market. The machine looks great, its build quality is fantastic, and the keyboard is even large enough to touch-type. But given that the Eee PC S101 is essentially an ASUS Eee PC 1000 in a slimmer case, at almost twice the price, you’ll have to justify the price. While the Eee PC S101 is one of the best netbooks you can buy, it’s not perfect.

  • Excerpt: To a casual observer the new S101 wouldn't seem like much of an upgrade. But unlike its predecessor, the 1000H, it has a hard disk instead of an SSD memory and this minor detail makes a major difference to the model. At 2.5-inch, the 5400 RPM drive does slightly inflate the computer but it was chosen in preference to the 1.8-inch, which would have streamlined the chassis, because of its superior performance.

The Eee PC S101H, the latest ASUS netbook, isn't only about style; it's also got plenty of substance.

Good Gear Guide.au
19 July 2009
  • Summary: If it's good looks and ease of use you desire, this well featured netbook will be right up your alley. It also has 802.11n Wi-Fi, which is faster than most other netbooks on the market, and you get a 160GB hard drive.
  • Pros: 802.11n Wi-Fi, comfortable to use, big touchpad
  • Cons: Poor screen, awkwardly placed SD card slot, the style adds a lot to the price tag
