ASUS ZX-series 12-inch notebook rumored: grown-up Eee PC S101

ASUS might be expecting 22-percent of their 2009 sales to come from netbooks, but that doesn't mean the company has forgotten about its mainstream notebook line.  In fact, they still expect to ship more than twice that amount of notebook computers, 47-percent of total shipments, and it'll be made up of slick new machines like the rumored 12-inch ZX-series.  Believed to fit in above the 10.2-inch ASUS Eee PC S101, the ZX-series will have comparable industrial design and super-skinny chassis, with a 16:10 aspect display and "similar functionality".

Back in September we got our first look at ASUS's sleek budget-friendly EeeBook X205, a thin laptop running Windows 8.1 and offering users a so-called smartphone experience.

ASUS Transformer Prime GPS freebie small-print prompts owner ire

ASUS may have managed to turn aftersales gold into PR misery, using spec sheet small print to explain why many Eee Pad Transformer Prime owners won't get a free GPS-fixing dongle. The company was praised earlier this week for agreeing to send Transformer Prime owners an add-on to address shoddy positioning performance; now, though, ASUS not all buyers will actually be eligible, since marketing materials in some places never actually mentioned GPS location functionality.
