ASUS prepping Eee PC 904 and 905?

ASUS Eee PC 904 Rumor

ASUS is developing a new Eee PC that would offer the comfort of its larger 10-inch models at the cost of the 8.9-inch models, according to reports from supply channels. The Eee PC 904 and 905 would have the same 8.9-inch display as the 901 notebook but with the enclosure of the 1001, giving it a larger keyboard without necessarily changing the price. Battery life and storage may also go up with the larger case but are reportedly uncertain.

Both should still be based on the Intel Atom and will be close enough in feature set and cost to replace the Celeron-based 900 and Atom-based 901 outright, though whether this happens is unclear. ASUS is allegedly mulling keeping one or both of the earlier models in place at a lower cost to better match the Acer Aspire One, which sells for roughly $100 less than the Eee PC 901.
