True to its word, Asus unleashed its new Eee PC 900 sub-notebook upon the U.S. public earlier today. The machine is available in both Windows XP- and Linux-based variants from Newegg as well as other U.S. online retailers such as Buy.com and ZipZoomFly.
Newegg pegs the two new notebooks at the official $549.99 MSRP. The Eee PC 900 12G comes with Windows XP Home Edition, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, and 12GB of flash storage, while the Eee PC 900 20G has Linux pre-installed and also packs 1GB of RAM, but with a meatier 20GB of flash storage capacity. Both laptops also have 8.9", 1024 x 600 displays, Intel Celeron CPUs, Intel integrated graphics, 802.11g Wi-Fi, 100Mbps Ethernet, VGA video and high-definition audio outputs, 1.3-megapixel web cameras, MMC/SD card readers, and four-cell batteries.
The Eee PC 12G and 20G are currently listed as in stock at Newegg, which charges $11.62 for three-business-day shipping. Right now, the only color available seems to be "Pearl White," whether at Newegg or at other e-tailers.
