DigiTimes is reporting that Asus has stopped taking orders for the Eee PC 900 in anticipation of the launch of the Eee PC 901. That doesn’t mean the Eee PC 900 will disappear overnight. You can still find plenty of Windows and Linux models at online retailers including Amazon and Newegg. But it’s possible that when the current stock dries up, those stores will be forced to replace the 900 with the 901.
That means you might be stuck choosing between a sub-$400 Eee PC 701 and and a $600+ Eee PC 901. I think there’s still plenty of room for a $500 in-between device. On the other hand, maybe this means the Eee PC 901 will be cheaper than originally reported, which also seems like a strong possibility since the MSI Wind, a mini-laptop with similar specs, will likely retail for just $400 to $550.
