Last week Asus launched an online storage service for Eee PC customers — but only Eee PC 901 and 1000 users can access the site at yostore.net. But Aldrin Cantos at Asus Eee HowTo says that could soon change.
Cantos says he’s received word from YoStore support saying that those who have purchased older Eee PC models like the Asus Eee PC 701 or Eee PC 900 will soon be able to access the web service. Users can store up to 20GB of data online, although it’s possible that you’ll get less storage space if you have an older unit. For example, if you have an Eee PC with a 4GB solid state disk, you may only get 4GB of storage. This is how I originally expeced the YoStore to work, but since Asus seems to be providing 20GB to Eee PC 1000 and 901 users who may have 40GB or more of storage on their computers, it looks like 20GB might just be the standard offering.
Users will also be able to find software and firmware updates for the Eee PC at the YoStore. Eventually Asus may sell third party software through the site as well.
Isn’t the service free for just the first year?
YoStore just said on an email that the service will be available to non-eee user as well.
