Asus debuts netbook with Windows 7 and 512GB SSD

Asus has debuted an ultra thin netbook S121 running Windows 7 and the worlds largest 512GB solid state drive(SSD). The S121 netbook is equipped with a 1.33GHz Intel Atom microprocessor and uses their touch mode software on Windows 7.

This is a huge step for Windows 7 considering that Windows Vista is not a good option for netbooks. The netbook is expected to be available in a month, but without Windows 7. Windows 7 will be available once it hits the market later this year.

A few weeks back Neowin discussed whether Windows 7 is the Linux-netbook killer and we got great response from our users. It wouldn't be big surprise if we see more netbook vendors release their product powered by Windows 7 as it nears RTM.
