When Asustek launched its low-cost, ultra-compact Eee PC notebook in Taiwan in October, the company announced four models—the 2G Surf, 4G Surf, 4G, and 8G. So far, only the 4G and 4G Surf have made it to U.S. shores. However, a report by DailyTech suggests the 8G is on track to show up in the States later this month.
DailyTech points to a listing on notebook and gadget vendor Dynamisn.com that shows the Eee PC 8G and quotes a $499.99 price tag as well as a "Mid-to Late December" lead time for the machine. Two variants are listed: one with the Eee PC's more popular "pearl white" casing, and another clad in a "galaxy black" paint job. According to DailyTech, a green casing option will appear soon, as well.
The Eee PC 8G is similar to the $399.99 Eee PC 4G, but it comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage capacity instead of the 4G's 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage space. Other specs like the built-in 7" display, 3.5-hour battery, Intel processor, web cam, and Linux-based software are the same for both machines.
