Asus recently launched its latest notebooks to the market. Aside from the spec upgrades, Asus has also updated the design of these portables to give it more FLARE. To be more specific, these latest portables has the Taiwanese company’s Flare design concept which raises the style points on these portables.

The Asus Eee PC X101 line is the company’s most afforable netbook line. With the Flare update, not only does the new X101CH have a trendy design and Black and Red colors to choose from, it also uses Intel’s latest Atom CPUs known as Ceder Trail. The Atom N2600 CPU is capable of playing full 1080p videos which wasn’t possible with previous Atom CPUs. The processor is capable of providing better performance while giving off less heat and better battery life. In fact, the X101CH doesn’t even have an exhaust fan to dissipate heat.

The Eee PC 1025C has a bit more power than the X101 with its Intel Atom N2800 Ceder Trail CPU. However, with that speed bump, it still doesn’t compromise on battery life. How long with the 1025C last on one charge? How about 12 hours? A 12 hour netbook that has the performance for Full HD video in a stylish metallic side body and a metallic paint texture. The Eee PC 1025C boasts a 2 second boot time from sleep with Instant On. The Eee PC 1025 is available locally in Paris Pink and City Grey.

The Flare-designed 12″ 1225B netbook has style without being overt. Available in Matte Grey and Matte Red, the 1225B is one of the few 12″ netbooks around and now it has been updated with AMD’s E-450 APU. With the E-450 APU, you get even more performance than even current netbooks. AMD’s APU even allows some 3D gaming at decent speeds, which is almost unheard of in netbooks.

Also at the launch is the Hot Pink Zenbook Ultrabook. While it may still have the same specs as the other Zenbooks, it still isn’t something to sneeze about. It packs Intel’s 2nd Generation Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, and an SSD. It still boasts the 2 second boot from sleep in a form factor that thin and light.

While the Hot Pink Zenbook is definitely a stunner, it is after the first impressions that makes it shine. Opening the Zenbook, you notice that the neon pink color extends to the bezel of the 13″ display. Contrasted with the black finish of the keyboard and touchpad, makes the Zenbook even more elegant. A nice touch is the pink letters on the keys which adds to the elegance of this Zenbook.
