Despite bearing the hallmarks of a netbook, ASUS will offer its Eee PC X101 as a Linux tablet alternative.

As posted on ASUS’ blog, its Eee PC X101 will serve as an alternative to small laptops despite bearing the hallmark of a netbook. First, at 0.69 inches thin and two pounds in weight, it will be thinner and lighter than a typical netbook. Second, it runs MeeGo Linux instead of Windows 7. While the latter has been the predominant OS for netbooks over the past few years, MeeGo Linux is more suitable to ultrasmall designs which typically doesn’t have the horsepower to efficiently run the Microsoft OS.

Third, the ASUS Eee PC X101 does not have Ethernet ports and VGA.
