The main selling point for the Eee PC 900 is that it has a larger, higher resolution display than the Eee PC 701, but fits in the same small case. It turns out that’s not entirely true. The Eee PC 900 is actually a tiny bit bigger than the 701, and it weighs a few grams more.
While I’ve read this before, CNet’s Crave UK has some photos that make it more clear than ever. The screen is a little bit higher on the Eee PC 900, and the back of the unit sticks out a little bit further when you look at the computers side by side. For a few more comparison shots, check out the Crave article.
I doubt the size difference will be enough to discourage any prospective Eee PC 900 buyers. But I just didn’t want you to go around thinking the new unit was identical in size to the old one. There, I’ve done my good deed for the day.
