ASUS revives 9-inch netbooks with Eee PC 900AX

ASUS Eee PC 900AX now official

After virtually dropping screen sizes below 10 inches for over a year, ASUS has officially launched the 8.9-inch Eee PC 900AX. The system is aimed clearly at the entry level and uses the older 1.6GHz Atom N270 as well as Windows XP; at the same time, it makes use of some lessons learned since ASUS' last netbook this size. It uses a newer edge-to-edge keyboard and appears to be a slight overall design tune up of its ancestor.

It's still capped at 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive and actually cuts prices further by using a VGA webcam instead of the 1.3-megapixel camera on the original Eee PC 900. Using the older Atom puts the battery life relatively low at about 4 hours.

While pricing is still a mystery, any launch would very likely put the 900AX below the $300 asking price for many newer 10-inch netbooks. ASUS as always hasn't detailed its pricing or ship schedule but should have it available shortly. [via Eee PC News]
