[Video] First look at the Asus Eee PC X101CH Cedar Trail netbook
The Asus Eee PC X101Ch is an updated version of the existing Eee PC X101 netbook which launched this summer. While still on the budget end of the scale, we’d expect this new model is probably more expensive since it ships with Windows 7 instead of MeeGo Linux. It’s also a little thicker than the X101 thanks to full-sized VGA, HDMI and Ethernet ports.
On the back there isn’t a RAM or hard drive access pane so you’ll need to disassemble the Eee PC X101CH to replace or update the internal components. Under the hood is 1GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 3 cell, 28Whr battery. It has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel matte display.
If you stay tuned until the end of the Netbook Live video you can get a look at the out-of-the-box experience with streaming video. The short version: Don’t expect too much from an entry-level netbook.
