A purported sales kit that leaked earlier this week suggested Asustek's Eee PC low-cost laptop would arrive on U.S. shores tomorrow. Well, the system has made its appearance a little earlier than expected, and it's already available for purchase and in stock at Newegg.
The press kit was right about one thing, though: only the high-end, $399.99 variant of the Eee PC seems to be available. That particular machine is nicknamed 4G, and it features an unnamed Intel processor, 7" display, 4GB solid-state hard drive, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a built-in camera, and a customized Linux-based operating system. The system weighs in at 0.92 kg (just over 2lbs), and Asustek says its battery can last up to 3.5 hours.
According to the leaked press kit, two other Eee PC models are expected in the United States with price tags of $299.99 and $349.99. Asustek has yet to announce release dates for those machines, though.
