ASUS Eee PC 900 1000 Price
ASUS late yesterday set out tentative American pricing via LAPTOP for its Eee PC 901 and 1000-series micro notebooks. The 8.9-inch Eee PC 901 will sell for $599 in the US for both the 12GB Windows XP-based version or the 20GB Linux model; the 10-inch Eee PC 1000 will sell for $699 with as much as 40GB of flash memory. The special hard drive-based 1000H will use its less expensive rotating storage to drop the price to $649 while doubling capacity again to 80GB.
All of the systems are expected to hold to ASUS' original design with a 1.6GHz Atom and theoretical battery life just under eight hours. ASUS has yet to set official launch dates for the new notebooks in the US but should offer both black and white versions within the next few weeks.
