Reception[edit]

The Eee PC S101 received generally favorable reviews from members of the press. Joanna Stern wrote for Laptop Magazine that "The Eee PC S101 is hands-down the best looking mini-notebook we have seen..." but went on to note that there were several competing netbooks that offered similar features at lower prices.[3] TrustedReviews noted that the S101 visually "pushes all the right buttons" and that overall they believe that the S101 "deserves a recommendation because it's discernibly different from what else is available - something you can't say that often." [4]

User reaction was also positive with a 3.5/5 average score from users on CNet.[5] Users on Newegg also responded positively with an average rating of 4/5 stars. 62% of the reviews were 5-star reviews.[6]
