It’s official: Asus is pulling yet another Eee PC out of its very, very large hat. The Asus Eee PC 900A, which we first started to hear about a few weeks ago, is indeed virtually identical to the Eee PC 900. But there’s one major difference: The new model packs an Intel Atom CPU.

The Eee PC 900A is also the first Eee PC I’ve seen that comes in purple. Here’s a rundown of the rest of the specs:

  • CPU: Intel Atom N270
  • Display: 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 8GB or 16GB SSD and 20GB free online storage
  • Connectivity: 802.11b/g, Ethernet
  • Expansion: SD card slot, 3 USB ports, VGA output,
  • Webcam: 0.3 megapixels
  • Battery: 4 cell, 3-4 hours
  • Dimensions: 22.5cm x 17cm x 2~3.38cm
  • Weight: .99kg
  • Colors: white, black, and purple

No official word on pricing or availability yet, but German retailer ComTech is accepting preorders for the computer for 299 Euros or about $445 US.

  1. This looks like the Aspire One with an extra battery cell, free online storage, double the RAM (also, presumably easier to add more), and a bit lighter.

    For only about $50 more.

    Given today’s disappointing news about the lack of a Dell netbook, it looks like the 900A will be my choice once it’s available in the US.
