Asus finally unveiled the latest additions to its ever growing Eee PC family: The Eee PC 901 and the Eee PC 1000 and 100(H). A WiMAX-enabled Eee PC 901 will also be on display during the show.
The specifications of the Eee PC 901 are not much of a surprise. It will be powered by an Intel Atom processor and, like the Eee PC 900, will come with an 8.9-inch display. It will also come with 1GB RAM, a 1.3MP camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a six-cell battery. Two configurations will be available. The first will come with 12GB of SSD-based storage and Windows XP Home while the second offers 20GB of SSD-based storage and Linux.
Asus is also showing off a WiMAX-enabled version of the Eee PC 901. It is likely that Asus is waiting for WiMAX networks to get off the ground (for example in the U.S.) before confirming its plans though.
Then there are the new Eee PCs. Both the Eee PC 1000 and 1000H will come with an Intel Atom processor, a 10-inch display, 2GB RAM, a 1.3MP camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a six-cell battery. The Eee PC 1000 will come with 40GB of SSD-based storage and Linux while the 1000H will come with an 80GB hard drive and Windows XP Home. The 1000 models will also benefit from a 92-percent keyboard (like the HP 2133 Mini-Note).
The new models all come with Asus’ exclusive Super Hybrid Engine technology that promises to extend battery life.
Asus did not reveal pricing or availability details.
