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."
