Asus Announces Two More Atom-powered Subnotebooks

Asus knows its subnotebooks are fashionable, and the company's preparing to offer two new models of its popular Eee PC lineup.

Set for a 2008 release, the two new models, Ultimate and Pro Fashion,
will feature dual-core Intel Atom processors and expanded storage
capacities. Asus president Jerry Shen told Digitimes that one of the
models (it's unclear which) will have a four-to-five hour battery life
and include a 10.1-inch, 32GB solid state driven and a widescreen LED
backlit panel. This model, estimated to cost between $700 and $900, is expected to arrive September.

The Ultimate and Pro Fashion will be Asus's fourth and fifth
subnotebook models featuring Inte's power-efficient Atom processors designed specially for smaller devices.
