Want an Eee PC 900 but don’t want to wait until May 12th for Asus to begin selling the laptop in the US? There’s always eBay. As AsusEeeBlog points out, the updated Eee PC is already showing up on the auction site.
It looks like you should be able to pick one up for around $650, plus a hefty shipping fee since the computer will be coming from Hong Kong or another exotic location. One seller seems to be located in Russia. It’s not entirely clear how each seller got their hands on the latest Eee PC, which has not yet been released in most countries.
Of course, you could save a few bucks by waiting for the official European or US launch.
