Asus has finally announced the US release date and pricing for the Eee PC 900. It should be available in the US on May 12th, and the computer will cost $549, which is almost $100 cheaper than the European version, as expected, but a bit more pricier than the version available in Hong Kong.

At $549, the Eee PC 900 is exactly the same price as an HP 2133 Mini-Note with a 120GB hard drive and a 1.2GHz VIA processor running OpenSUSE Linux and a 1280 x 600 pixel display. The Eee PC 900, on the other hand will have a 12GB or 20GB solid state flash memory disk, a 900MHz Celeron processor, a 1024 x 600 pixel display, and will be available with Windows XP or Linux. In other words, the companies aren’t making this choice easy for anyone.
