Asus Eee PC 900 gets an official price and launch date
If you’ve been waiting on the Eee PC’s big brother to hit the US, you’ll be happy to hear that your wait will be over before too long. The Eee PC 900 features upgrades in just about every department, which of course includes a bigger price tag.
Starting on May 12th, you’ll be able to pick up this slightly larger notebook from Asus. You’ll be treated to a 9-inch screen (which should still be comfortably small) running at 1024 x 600, 1GB of RAM and 12GB of hard drive space (for the Windows XP version, 20GB if you choose Linux).
While you’re still going to be expected to shell out more than the $399 price tag of its predacessor, $549 really isn’t a bad deal for everything you get. If you were hesitant about the size or disk space of the original, this one might just ease your fears.
