CNET UK reviews Asus Eee PC 900, gives it an 8.7


Good news for those of you waiting for the Eee PC 900 to be released; it looks to be a winner. CNET UK’s Rory Ried took a look at it and gave it an 8.7 out of 10. He liked the bigger 8.9-inch 1024×600 resolution screen, the built-in 1.3-megapixel camera, and the wide-aspect multi-touch trackpad, and the full one gigabyte of RAM.

The keyboard apparently hasn’t changed at all from the Asus Eee PC 701, so typing is still a bit cumbersome and it also uses the same Celeron 900 processor as before just as Intel’s new Atom processors are getting ready for production. Those opting for the Windows XP version will get a 12GB hard drive while Linux users will get 20GB.
