Apparently Asus didn’t just divide the storage on the Eee PC 900 into two separate partitions like I’d originally thought. No, they instead have put two separate solid state disks in each unit. Both the Linux and Windows XP models will have 4GB of flash storage soldered to the motherboard, and the Linux version will have a 16GB SSD in a PCIe slot while the Windows version will have an 8GB SSD.
On the one hand, this means that users should be able to upgrade their storage relatively easily. On the other hand, it means you’re pretty much stuck with 4GB for your system files, which could be kind of annoying.
In other news, Bit-Tech has some unboxing photos, this time in English. They’ve also got word on K pricing £329, which is about $647 US. That’s significantly more than the Hong Kong version which is expected to sell for the equivalent of $513 US.
