Target starts carrying $299.99 Eee PCs

Asus may have controversial aspirations for high-end Eee PCs with intimidating price tags, but the company hasn’t given up on the cheaper members of the Eee line. In fact, it’s struck a deal that will see the cheapest Eee variant take residence on Target store shelves.

Target already lists the $299.99 Eee PC 2G Surf on its website, and Asus tells us the chain will feature the netbook at 150 of its retail locations across the United States—from Bangor, Maine to San Diego, California. Asus has been selling the 2G Surf at that price in the U.S. since last year, but the system has been available chiefly at online retailers like Newegg.

The Eee PC 2G Surf features a 7″ 800×480 display, an Intel Celeron processor, 512MB of DDR2 memory, a 2GB flash drive, and a 2.8-hour battery. You definitely won’t be watching Blu-ray movies or playing Crysis on a laptop like that, but the Eee PC 2G Surf does weigh in at just two pounds (920 g), and it has a Lillliputian footprint of only 8.9″ x 6.3″ (23 x 16 cm)—not a whole lot bigger than a DVD case.

    Actually and honestly, as I clicked on the headline to read this I was thinking “If they want to really succeed at Target they need to offer it in more colors.”

    Yea pink… sweet color. Only real men buy pink electronics- those not afraid to be in touch with their emotions.

      My cellphone is pink. I picked it out. No problems here, and people take notice.

          are you kidding me? He can wear anything, put it on his rockawear brand line and sell it. You cant doubt the “king of hip hop”

            He can wear it because his wife is Beyonce. Other than that he couldn’t wear it either.

            How could you leave out chuck norris. I dare you to comment about it in a negative way to him ;).

            Chuck Norris is not a man, he is a deity’s avatar.

            Plus, any time he puts on pink it instantly turns red just to avoid accidently being feminine around him.

        I wish I still had my pink phone; but I needed a smartphone and all the pink ones are ugly regardless of colour.

    The 2G surf needs more publicity, it’s dirt cheap and it works well.

    Plus it comes in pink.
