Asus has announced that starting today, customers who purchase an Eee PC will get up to 20GB of online storage space for free. It sounds like the amount of storage space you get depends on the model you’ve purchased. If you have an Eee PC 2G Surf, for example, you get 2GB of online storage, while Eee PC 901 Linux customers will get 20GB. It sounds like 20GB is the max, so don’t expect to get 80GB when you go picking up an Eee PC 1000H.

This means you should have enough space to backup your entire computer online, although it’s not clear whether Asus will provide backup tools or if the space is primarily meant for storing documents and media files.

The Eee Store will be free for one year. It’s not clear if the company will charge for access after that, or how much it will charge.
