Asus is releasing some more details about the upcoming Eee PC 901, Eee PC 1000, and Eee PC 1000H. When the company unveiled the machines at Computex last week, we got a look at the Taiwanese prices, which ranged from the equivalent of $559 to $658 USD. But it looks like it will cost a few bucks more to pick up an Eee PC in the US or UK.

Laptop Magazine got an official US price for the Eee PC 901, and estimated prices for the Eee PC 1000 Series:

  • Eee PC 901: $599
  • Eee PC 1000H (Windows XP with an 80GB HDD): $699
  • Eee PC 1000 (Windows XP or Linux with a 40GB SSD): $649

There’s still no word on when these computers will drop in the US, but we’ll probably see at least the Eee PC 901 start showing up by the end of June or beginning of July.

It looks like Asus has already announced a firm release date for the UK: July 1st. PC Advisor reports that the Eee PC will cost £319 in the UK, while pricing hasn’t been announced for the Eee PC 1000 series yet.

  1. Thats odd… i thought the 1000 woud be more expensive since the 1000H is a spinning hard drive and the 1000 is SSD.

    Anyways, good to hear that these netbooks are coming out sooner than later. As of now I am hoping to get the 1000 model in the windows variety.
