Asus to Release 11.6-inch Eee PC

We’ve seen Asus push the boundaries of what a netbook should do with the Eee PC 1004DN and its built-in optical drive.

Although we’ve seen larger-screened ‘netbooks’ from Dell in the Mini 12, Asus will soon be pushing the Eee PC to 11.6-inches, according to Digitimes.

The most popular, or at least the most readily available Eee PC models will still be 10-inchers – making up half of all Eee PC shipments – but the 11.6-inch model will be the second most popular with 30 percent Asus’ netbook shipments for the year.

The line between notebook and netbook is about to get blurrier.

    Why would anyone want a smaller laptop with less performance for more cost then a real laptop?
