They've also tweaked the power consumption of the unit, which they claim has given this machine up to five hours of continuous use. Whether that means simply idly or actually using a demanding application they don't say, but five hours of battery in such a small machine is impressive.
What's not impressive is the price. The lowest-priced version, which has a tiny 16GB SSD with Windows XP, is $699. That's the same price a 32GB version with Linux costs. For the full 64GB SSD flavor, you're now running into the $799 range. That's beyond “low-end” laptop and right up into the “midrange” laptop. Asus has definitely made the Eee PC exit the market it originally broke into.
