Asus has decided to throw its naming conventions to the wind and launch two new Eee PC models with rather nonsensical names. The Eee PC 1000HD is pretty much just like the Eee PC 1000H, but instead of an Intel Atom CPU, it features an Intel Pentium M Dothan CPU running at 900MHz.

In other words, you get a 10 inch screen, 80GB hard drive, 1.3MB camera, 6 cell battery, and Pentium processor. I suppose it’s possible that the H stands for hard drive, since the Eee PC also has one of those, and that the D could stand for Dothan.

But then Asus goes and names another new model the Eee PC 904HD. And while that model has a 9 inch display and a hard drive, as you’d expect from the name, it features a 900MHz Intel Celeron CPU. I’m so confused!

In all other respects, the Eee PC 904HD looks like a cross between the Eee PC 901 and the Eee PC 1000HD. It has the case stylings of the 901, but has an 80GB hard drive, 0.3MP camera, and a 6 cell battery.

For anyone keeping track, that brings the Asus model number lineup to 10. If you can’t quite recall the differences between the 701 2G Surf, 701 4G, 701 4G Surf, 701 8G, 900, 901, 904HD, 1000, 1000H, and 1000HD, you can find each item listed on the official Asus products page.

  1. graphhics ?…… asus 904 HD, win 7 ultimate, my pc wont show 1024x 768. it only displays upto 800×600,, anyone know the correct driver to install to enable optionable display’s

  2. I don’t see how they are doing this from a marketing standpoint. People will just get more and more confused, it makes no sense. If it has nearly everyone outside scratching their heads, I really want to know what is going on inside ASUS.

  3. I don’t exactly understand the advantages to having these 2 other chips. Could this simply be a reaction to whatever Atom shortage there might be?
