As it turned out, ASUS intends to release in the second half of 2009 as new models of Eee PC, equipped with sensory displays. In addition, a key feature of new products could be installing a new operating system Windows 7, to realize multisensorny interface. In doing so, Windows Vista, will likely remain generally ignored the Taiwanese manufacturer, and before the arrival of a new generation netbukov all Eee PC will be equipped with only Windows XP OS or Linux.
Jerry Shen said that Windows 7 will be placed not on all models, because in addition to all of its merits sensor technology has significant shortcomings. For example, when installing a multi-tach panel developers will be forced to increase the thickness of netbuka, but it is unlikely to be happy with the perceived buyers. Also President of ASUS did not cast the possibility of issuing planshetnogo netbuka.

To speed up loading and extension of battery developed proprietary technology ExpressTest, first implemented in netbuke Eee PC S101. Later, this technology will be introduced in all netbuki company ASUS.
