Netbooks will not die easily, as proven by a newly-released Eee PC X101 by Asus. The MeeGo-powered netbook, along with beefed up Windows-run X101H, have appeared on its own product pages on Asus’ website. After all, comsumers will never complain about computers that lag in computing power as long as it is portable.

The X101 features a 10.1-inch display with 1024 x 600 resolution, 1.5GHz Intel Atom Oak Trail processor, MeeGo OS, dual USB ports, WiFi, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB SSD. Asus hopes that the MeeGo would solve the lackluster performance commonly seen in previous netbooks, as the OS is built for low-power computing platforms.

The Asus Eee PC X101 is expected to hit the market within this month–or the month after that–for only $200, while the Windows counterpart would cost a bit more.

After seeing the engadget review for this and seeing how smooth it is, I plan on making it one of my suggestions to my boss. The technical recruiter company I work at is considering the acquisition of netbooks for those of us in IT to be more mobile and bring our debugging software to the desks of those in the office. Thanks for the post, Rolland
