ASUS had a lot of new and innovative products on display at Computex, but maybe none as interesting as these two notebooks. The UX21 was the flagship product for Intel's new "Ultrabook" category and while we have already posted about it earlier, I thought these new photos would be worth sharing.
The UX21 is an ultra-thin 1.7cm at its widest and weighs only 1.1 Kg fully loaded. It will include the ASUS "Instant On" technology, resuming the system in just 5 seconds and is claimed as the first notebooks with a SATA 6G SSD.
Sporting a new ULV Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor, this system won't skimp on performance either if it lives up to its claims.
More photos and information after the break!!
Another interesting machine in the thin-and-light department is the new Eee PC X101. It will fall on the complete opposite side of the spectrum in terms of price, starting at only $199.
It definitely is thin and light, (weighing only 950g) though it does ditch the Windows environment for a Meego-based operating system customized by ASUS. Powered by an Atom N435 processor and utilizing a 10-in screen, this is the definition of classic netbook.
