    Next week ASUS will be rekindling the netbook flame with the release of the F201E trio. The F201E models feature a 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display, a 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor, 2/4 GB of RAM, a 320/500 GB hard drive, a 0.3-megapixel webcam, a 3-in-1 card reader, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, one USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, and a 5,200 mAh battery enabling up to 5 hours of operation.

    The cheapest of the F201E lot, priced at €299, runs Ubuntu and has 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HDD. The same specs, paired up with Windows 8, cost €359. Last but not least, there's a €329 model with 2 GB of RAM and a 320 GB hard drive.

    Price seems nice - wonder if they'll release one on ARM to counter Samsung's Chromebook...

    I like the lid colour =]

    Not uncommon, the early netbooks are all shipped with various Linux flavours.

    Apple is bad

    I think it's idiotic idea to copy Apple design, which i never liked, now even think pads and inspirons look like MacBooks (E330, E430...) :banghead:

    The Celeron 847 has no "Trusted Execution" so it is not compatible with Win8 :confused:

    Stuffs get thinner and smaller through time.

    It's obvious.

    Thread cleaned. The people who were arguing and insulting one another in this thread can now keep out of it.
