If you’ve been following the Liliputing Deals section, you may have noticed that various Asus Eee PC 701, 900, and 901 have become staples over the past few weeks. You can often find these netbooks for under $200. Sometimes they’re new; sometimes refurbished. But the point is that these computers which were first introduced just a year or two ago are now going for less than half the original retail price in many cases.
And it looks like that trend is likely to continue… at least while supplies last. DigiTimes reports that Asus has been reducing prices for its 7 inch and 8.9 inch Eee PC models in Taiwan and China. You can pick up an Asus Eee PC 701 in Taiwan for the equivalent of about $150, while an 8.9 inch model is going for about $220 in China. If these price drops are indeed new, then we might start seeing even better deals in the US soon.
