While most of us will have to wait a little while to get our hands on the new Eee PC 901, tech journalists and bloggers who are in Taipei for Computex can just wander down the street and pick one up. Well, maybe it’s not quite that easy. Joanna Stern from Laptop Magazine says she had to check with 10 different shops before finding one that had the computer. But ultimate, Stern and colleagues from Eee PC News.de and NotebookReview all managed to pick up shiny new Eee PC 901 units.

The laptops are selling for 17,300 NTS, which is about $573 US and run the Chinese version of Windows XP. The keyboards on these early production models were apparently a little bit bent, so all three proud new Eee PC 901 users wound up removing the keyboards to fix them. Hopefully that won’t be necessary by the time these computers start hitting the states.

You can check out a gallery of unboxing and hands on photos at Laptop Magazine, while you can see some initial benchmark test results at Eee PC News.de.
