The Hong Kong PDA Users Group, or HKPUG managed to get some alone time with a pre-release version of the Asus Eee PC 904HD. The 904HD features an 8.9 inch display like the Eee PC 900/901, but has a larger case and keyboard like the Eee PC 1000. That means it has a bezel around the screen that’s reminiscent of the ugly bezel on the original Eee PC 701.
The 904HD also comes equipped with a 900MHz Intel Celeron processor and not the faster 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU that the Eee PC 901 and 1000 use. But before you go thinking this is just a glorified Eee PC 900, Asus has increased the computer’s storage capacity. It looks like you have two hard drives (or partitions) of about 40GB each, which means the 904HD comes with 80GB of storage.
The folks at HKPUG have posted a few photos that should give you a good idea of how the computer looks. And they’ve also cracked open the case to show off the location of the hard drive and other internal components. Oh yeah, there’s also a video.
