Just when you thought Asus couldn’t possibly introduce yet another Eee PC model, the Eee PC 900HD shows up on the FCC web site. The 900HD shares more than a name with the Eee PC 900 and 900A. The PC’s chassis looks basically the same as earlier Eee PC 900 models. But if you look at the bottom of the case, the access panel is significantly larger, which could make it much easier to get at the hard drive — because that’s likely the main thing that sets this PC apart from its predecessors, the inclusion of a hard drive instead of flash storage.

It’s not clear at the moment how big the hard drive is (either in terms of storage capacity or physical size. Is this a 1.8 inch model or a 2.5 inch hard drive?) We also don’t know if the Eee PC 900HD uses the same 900MHz Intel Celeron CPU that you can find in the Eee PC 900 or the newer 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU used in the Eee PC 900A. I’m inclined to think it probably uses the Celeron, otherwise it might be called the Eee PC 900AHD. Because there’s nothing Asus loves more than tacking extra letters onto a PC name.

  1. So did ASUS release the promised platform?

    Asus to launch Eee PC 900HD (with a hard drive) ?? I’m just so interested is this going to really happen?

    Cheers

  2. I’m fairly sure that the D stands for Dothan, the code name of the Celeron processor used in the older Eees.
