Our friends over at bit-tech managed to get hold of one of the first ASUS Eee PC 900 low-cost computers and unboxed it for everyone to see in its full glory.

It is said to be available from May 1st in the UK and brings with it a larger 8.9" screen featuring a 1024 x 600 resolution. It comes with the same Intel Celeron-M ULV 353 CPU (630MHz) and a G945 mobile chipset that features Intel GMA 900 graphics.

According to bit-tech, "It also comes with 1GB DDR2 as standard this time, which is twice that of the original Eee, and between 12 and 20GB of flash storage - 4GB onboard and 8-to-16GB from a separate module. It still weighs less than 1kg but it is fractionally heavier than the previous model. In addition, it features an upgraded 1.3MP webcam, but the same four cell, 2.5 hour battery (although a six cell battery is available) and 802.11b/g WiFi."
