It figures. A few weeks after I pulled the trigger and ordered an Eee PC 1000H for $550, Asus decides to drop the price a second time. The 1000H was originally listed at $650 before Asus marked the price down to compete with the MSI Wind and other cheap laptops. Now it looks like you can pick up a 1000H for $505 at Amazon or as low as $449 at Mwave. In fact, if you’re willing to take an open box unit, MWave has one going for $359 at thee moment.
Apparently Asus is dropping prices across the board. Earlier today I noted that you can pick up an Eee PC 901 for under $500. And it looks like the Eee PC 1000 with its 40GB SSD is going for $599 now, which is about $100 cheaper than it was selling for a few days ago.
Update: Amazon also has the Eee PC 1000H for $449. For some reason this didn’t come up in my initial search.
Update 2: Newegg has also cut its price for the 1000H to $449: ASUS Eee PC 1000H 80G â€“ Fine Ebony Intel Atom 10.0″ WSVGA Integrated Graphics
