We'd already gotten our hands-on with the crimson-colored ultraportable, but now there's a whole list of specs to flesh out this 920g wonder."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1311955676.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>The specifications for the X101 do not look that impressive.&nbsp; In fact, it looks a lot like many of the netbooks of years gone by.&nbsp; Probably the biggest part of interest is the $199 price tag, which is finally starting to get the price of the netbook down to where it was originally supposed to be.&nbsp; I do not see the X101 saving the netbook industry, however.&nbsp; Netbooks will still play a wonderful role in our mobile computing, but tablets are the hot item, and what everyone is talking about.&nbsp; You will definitely not impress anyone at Starbucks with one of these.</p>
