UPDATED: Eee PC 903, 904 photos leak out

Yesterday morning, we pointed to a report about upcoming Eee PC 904 and 905 laptops. Barely a day later, we see that a whole batch of pictures of the 904 model and an “Eee PC 903” have leaked out. German site Eee PC News got hold of the 904 photos, while French site Blogeee.net posted the 903 shots in a different article.

As we reported yesterday, the Eee PC 904 is said to be a version of the Atom-powered 901 model squeezed into the same enclosure as the bigger Eee PC 1000. The photos confirm these rumors, showing a machine with a larger keyboard than the 901, but with some unused space around the display panel.

The 903 is a little more puzzling, since it seems to have more in common with the Celeron-powered Eee PC 900 than the Atom-based 901 system. Still, it trades the Asus branding for an Eee logo just like the 901, and Blogeee surmises that Asus will outfit it with an Atom processor. (Thanks to Engadget for the tip.)

Update: British site PC Retail now says it has received confirmation from Asus that an Eee PC 904 HD will hit UK store shelves “within a month.” The device will reportedly feature a hard drive, and it will be “the cheapest of the new models available.”

    Either Intel isn’t making enough Atoms and ASUS is replacing the 900 with the 903 and keeping the Celeron.

    Or the 903 supercedes both the 900 and 901, but what was wrong with the 901?

    The 903 and 904 look strangely different. The taper on the edge of the lid is smoothly rounded for 904 and sharp for 903.

    Maybe I haven’t read the articles properly, but it’s not clear to me what the difference between the two models is *supposed* to be. Screen size seems to be one.
