Eee PC On Sale in Black
ASUS today quietly released the Galaxy Black Eee PC, the first model of the ultraportable to be available outside of its signature white color. The matte-finish system receives the color change through its entire body, including a switch to a black keyboard. The 900MHz Celeron M, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of flash-based storage remain unchanged from the original, as are its Wi-Fi access and multi-format card reader.
The system ships pre-installed with ASUS' custom Linux OS and also matches the $399 price of the standard system. Online retailer NewEgg claims to have the system in stock and is shipping it today.
