Asus offers $100 rebate on Eee PC 900, brings price down to $449
Want a tiny laptop with an 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display and don’t care if it packs a 900MHz Intel Celeron CPU instead of a shiny new Intel Atom CPU? Asus is apparently hoping to move some of its Eee PC 900 inventory while at the same time differentiating the lower end PC from the newer Eee PC 901 model. The company is offering a $100 rebate to customers who purchase an Eee PC 900 between today and July 31st from participating retailers.
Right now it looks like you can get the rebate through Amazon and ZaReason. Or you can download the rebate form directly from ZaReason (PDF link). If you find any other participating sites, let us know in the comments.
With the Eee PC 901 selling for $599, a $449 Eee PC 900 looks like a pretty good deal. The “older” model has only been available for a few months. And while it doesn’t have a multi-touch trackpad or power-saving Intel Atom CPU, it closely resembles the Eee PC 901 in size and shape. And the 900MHz CPU is surprisingly zippy when performing basic tasks like editing Office documents or surfing web pages.
