EeePC 904HA unveiled
ASUS on Friday has added yet another portable notebook model to its EeePC line-up of netbooks with the 904HA. The newest notebook packs a 1.6GHz Atom CPU along with 1GB of RAM for processing power, and includes a 160GB hard drive for storage. It includes a 6-cell battery and, as the photos reveal, will be available in red and green in addition to the already offered black version. It includes the same 8.9-inch display as the smaller EeePC offerings, with a 1024x600 resolution.
Like the 904HD, the 904HA appears to have three USB ports, a multi-format memory card reader, a VGA output and headphone and microphone jacks among its connections. Hardware-wise, the 904HA trumps the HD's 80GB HDD and slower 900MHz Celeron processor.
A black 904HA with all of the above mentioned specs and Windows XP Home is listed for pre-order on Amazon.com for nearly $400 and there is no word, official or otherwise, on the availability and added cost, if any, of the green and red versions. [via EeePCnews]
