Eee 900

Slashdot It! Laptop Magazine scored an hour-long interview with Asus CEO Jerry Shen, and while most of the details they got out of him were already unveiled at CeBIT this week, they did manage to squeeze a few interesting nuggets out of him: * The US pricing for the Eee PC 900 will be around $499 at launch, with plans to drop the price within a few months * While initial reports have suggested that the Windows XP model will sport an 8GB SSD and the Linux version will have 12GB, Shen says the Linux model might have as much as 20GB of storage * Asus is looking into offering a hard drive option, but any units the company releases between now and June will have SSD only * Asus is not abandoning its custom Xandros operating system * Units with built-in WiMax and HSDPA could be released in Q3 2008 * Future models could use Intel's Diamondville processor * More color options are coming in a few months Get Daily Updates via Email Protect your computer with Windows Onecare Get paid $7.50 for reviewing my post Ad Space
