Asus Eee PC 900 available today as expected, around $560

410lbtxqznl_ss400_Here in the U.S., online retailers are offering the Asus Eee PC 900 as expected today. shows the device available at $565.99 with free shipping: this is the Linux-based model with 20 GB of flash storage. Small Laptops and Notebooks indicates the device status is “sold out” at NewEgg and OnSale, and it appears the same is true for Amazon. They show the device status as “not yet released” although they will accept a pre-order at $549.99 and free shipping. Once they have the device in stock, it will be on its way to you.Having bought and extensively used the prior Asus Eee PC, I think the larger display and the higher resolution are well worth a premium, as is the extra storage and memory. I’m still not sold on low- to mid-performance sub-notebooks with a rising price trend, but clearly it’s a personal preference on requirements and budget. Many folks will be happy with the new 900-series Eee PC, but my gut still says that Asus will sell far more of the 700-series over the long haul.
