Asus has officially confirmed what everybody already knew: the company will be releasing a new Eee PC model that has the screen of an Eee PC 900 and the body of an Eee PC 1000. In other words, you get a nice roomy(ish) keyboard but a cheaper 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display instead of the 10.2 inch display that comes with the 1000 series.
The 904 will sell for £269 or about $533, and should be out in mid-July. The PC will not include the fancypants new Intel Atom CPU, but will instead feature the older 900MHz Celeron M chip currently used in the Eee PC 900 and 701 series.
Here’s a rundown of the specs:
- Operating System: Windows XP
- Display: 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel
- Storage: 80GB HDD
- RAM: 1GB
- Weight: 1.4kg / 3.1lb
