Asus Eee PC S101 is one slender, attractive netbook

The new Asus Eee PC S101 is my new favorite netbook that I probably still won't buy. It's gorgeous, but more than that, it's tiny: 10.2-inch screen, less than 1 kilogram in weight (probably around 2 pounds), and only 1.8-centimeters thick. Before you ask: yup, that's smaller and thinner than the MacBook Air.

The tech specs are in line with most other netbooks: Wi-Fi (802.11n), Ethernet (only 10/100), 1GB of RAM, solid-state drive (16, 32, or 64GB), built-in card reader, Intel Atom processor.

So, so small, though. I'm sort of giddy about it and I have no reason to explain why that is so. I haven't even seen the inside of this thing yet. Prices start at $700, up to $800 depending on storage and OS options. (Windows and Linux are available.)
