The most important information is of course the price. Here we have a small disappointment. The price of the Asus Eee PC starts at $299 and goes as high as $399 depending on the configuration.
Back in June the price of the Asus Eee PC was communicated with $199, which would have really been hot. The lowest configuration of the Eee PC is dubbed Eee PC 2G Surf and has 256MB RAM, 2GB SSD, small battery and no camera. With 256MB you can forget running Windows XP.
For power users the Asus Eee PC 8G is anyway the only choice. $399 is not that bad for a 7 inch notebook with 1GB RAM, 8GB SSD, webcam and 3.5h battery life. On the Eee PC 8G, I can imagine running Windows XP reasonably well.
Asus is not getting very specific on the shipping date for the Asus Eee PC. The Asus Eee PC is scheduled to be available in the North America within a few weeks. See a couple new photos of the Asus Eee PC here. For details on the four available Asus Eee PC configurations see this report.

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.
