PC World India is reporting that the Eee PC 901 will hit the streets in “late June” and that Asus will be dropping the price of Eee PC 701 and Eee PC 900. I’m taking this information with a grain of salt, since I haven’t seen an official launch date yet and because computer makers have a tendency to miss their initial ship dates.
Also, since the Eee PC 901 will be the most expensive computer of the bunch, it’s possible that Asus won’t feel the need to offer any discounts to move the older models. After all, they’re already a bargain compared to the newest PC. On the other hand, when you can pick up an Acer Aspire One or an MSI Wind with an Intel Atom CPU and 1024 x 600 display for under $500, Asus might have to do something to stay competitive.
