Asus Eee PC 900 Review

See Asus Eee PC 900 Review at its new home on

The first full review of the Asus Eee PC 900 is available. The Eee PC is an ultra-portable computer and this newest version sports the following features:
  • 8.9 inch 1024x600 LCD
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • Linux or Windows XP
  • 20 GB SSD (Linux version) or 12 GB SSD (Windows XP version)
  • 900 MHz Intel Celeron CPU
  • 1.3 megapixel webcam
  • measures 225 x 165 x 35 mm (8.86 x 6.50 x 1.4 in) (WxDxH)
  • weighs about 1 kg (2.2 pounds)
Unfortunately the PC 900 isn't available in the US yet. Rumor is that it will have a $499 price tag when it's available here.

I find it interesting that the Eee PC is helping to push Linux on the desktop (well, on the ultra-portable) through the installed Xandros distribution. However, I would probably install eeeXubuntu if I were to get an Eee PC. I would have no interest in running Windows XP on the Eee PC.
