More Asus Eee PC information appears

Expected to retail for US$199

HotHardware has got some more dirt on the Linux powered Asus Eee PC, which is a very basic notebook, but it retains a pretty attractive design. The specs of the Eee PC weren't revealed at Computex last month, but according to the information on HotHardware, we're looking at a version of Intel's mobile 910 chipset and a 900MHz Dothan based Pentium M processor.

 

The Eee PC has 512MB of DDR2 memory, built in 802.11g Wi-Fi and a 4GB flash based drive. Not bad for US$199 and add another $100 and you get an 8GB drive thrown in, although this seems like an expensive upgrade option to us. At 890 grams, the Eee PC can compete with many so call ultra portable notebooks in terms of weight.

 

In terms of ports we're looking at two USB 2.0 ports, a headphone and mic jack, a 10/100Mbit Ethernet port and a 56k modem jack on the left side. Moving to the right there are a further two USB 2.0 ports, a D-sub and a memory card slot for SD/MMC cards. The Eee PC also has a small 4 cell battery that is apparently good for about 3h of un-tethered usage.

 

Looks like this could be on top of a lot of people's Christmas list year, as it should be available worldwide in the middle of August. Let's hope the price stays at $199.
