Recipient of the Reddot Design Award for 2010, Asus‘ incoming 12″ EeePC 1218 ultra-portable laptop is svelte in its aluminum unibody, which has 3 USB (3.0?), HDMI, and other ports at the rear. I wish that Asus had excluded the huge VGA out.

The EeePC title has a widely known association with inexpensive netbooks, but Asus’ 1218 is moving upscale and clearly targets the MacBook Air and Dell Adamo for luxury portable laptop supremacy. Despite teasing us with a few pictures and a few sentences, Asus has not said when the 1218 is arriving, nor have prices and specs been published. We can surmise that it will probably be powered by a duo-core Atom, a current ULV Core 2 Duo, or Intel’s newly announced ULV Core i7 chips.
