Asus Eee PC Pricing Official

There are four eee PCs you can choose from. The xG refers to the size of the SSD size. The new top model is the Asus eee PC 8G featuring 8GB of SSD storage and 1GB of RAM. The Eee PC 8G and the Eee PC 4G have also a better battery (3.5h) than the Eee PC 4G and 2G Surf (2.8h). See the table below for the specifications of the Asus Eee PC line-up.

All new Eee PCs are compatible with Linux and Windows XP. I suppose it is up to the retailer to offer pre-installed OS versions.
The Asus Eee PC 8G definitely looks good. Now it is just a question of the price. I hope Asus is not screwing up their opportunity to land a major hit with the Asus Eee PC.

See also our original Asus Eee PC report. The Asus Eee PC is supposed to ship at the end of this month. Pricing is still unclear, especially now that we have four models to choose from. In our latest Eee PC story from last week Asus named Newegg and Best Buy as retailers for the Eee PC.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
