Typical netbook form factors may be cute and compact, but trying to do actual work on a 1024x600 display can prove cumbersome. Luckily, while taking a tour of Asus' Computex booth last week, we spotted an upcoming Eee PC with a higher-resolution, 11.6-inch display.
The Eee PC 1101HA's display has a much comfier 1366x768 resolution, which seems to be standard on a lot of smaller 16:9 displays these days. Asus also outfits the system with an Intel Atom Z520 or Z530 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 160GB of mechanical storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and Windows XP Home Edition.
Portability may not have suffered too much from the bigger display, either. Asus quotes 9.5 or 11 hours of longevity depending on the battery type, and it says the system weighs in at just over three pounds. That's actually a bit lighter than some of the older 10" netbooks out there.
