It looks like Asus may be knocking $100 off the price of the Eee PC 1000H. While Amazon is still taking preorders for $650, Newegg is charging just $550. Newegg is also offering 3 day shipping and says the computer is in stock.

I’d say this was just a case of one retailer offering a deal, but Mwave has the Eee PC 1000H listed for $560. Unfortunately, Mwave says the computer isn’t currently in stock yet. But hey, two makes a trend. Or something.

The Eee PC 1000H has a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive. It comes with Windows XP and a 6 cell battery. In other words, you get everything you’d find in an MSI Wind notebook, plus a higher capacity battery. Currently the MSI Wind ships with a 3 cell battery.

At $479, the MSI Wind is still cheaper than the Asus Eee PC 1000H. But if you have your heart set on an Asus product (or a higher capacity battery), this price cut certainly looks like good news.

  1. this is a weird move by ASUS. It’s only been in stock a week! And now it’s more expensive to buy a 901? I’m sort of frustrated by this since I purchased a 901. I will be curious to see how this pans out.
