Eee PC grows to 11.6"

There's no doubt about it: bigger is often better, especially when applied to screen real estate.

When Asus first launched its soon-to-become sucessful Eee PC its biggest problem was its smallish 7" screen and its nearly unusable 800x480 low-resolution.

Asus took its time, but then realized it was indeed a mistake. Newer models were much better, with a 9" and 10" LCD offering a much nicer 1024x600 resolution.

Well, get ready... at the end of the month you should be able to get a new Eee PC with a 11.6" LCD and - hopefully - enabling higher resolutions.

To be honest, the current 1024x600 are still a bit cramped (though inifintely better than the previous 800x480 of the original Eee PC model.) For that form factor, a 1280x800 resolution would be a lot more useful and prevent a lot of vertical scrolling while browsing - not to mention they would be able to attach a new HD Ready sticker to it, enabling you to watch 720p HD videos.

Let's wait a few more days to see if we get detailed specs for this new Eee PC.
