Asustek debuted S121 — an ultra-thin, light netbook with two new technologies, Microsoft’s yet-to-be released Windows 7 OS and the world’s largest solid state drive (SSD) at 512GB. The S121 is just under an inch thick and is 11.7-inches by 8.3-inches, weighs about 3 lbs and carries a touchscreen that runs a specialized software Asustek developed for easy touch navigation. Asustek’s 512GB SSD announcement comes just a few weeks after Toshiba revealed its own 512GB SSD for laptops. Few other companies have announced SSDs with such large storage capacity.
The S121 will come with a 1.33GHz Intel Atom microprocessor. Few other details about the device were immediately available.
