Exclamation Asus Eee PC priced: $299 to $399

Asus Eee PC priced: $299 to $399

Oct 17th 2007



Yeah, we hear your moans and feel your pain: $299 for an Eee PC with 2GB SSD, 256MB RAM, Linux (presumably), and no camera. It's certainly not our (admittedly too-hopeful) expectation following the June announcement. If you're still with us, the fully-spec'd 8GB model with 1GB of memory, camera, and 3.5-hour battery will sell for $399 when Best Buy and NewEgg receive their stock at the end of the month. Well, there's always Eee PC version 2.

Wasn't there some huge millionaire that was designing something similar that you could hand generate power too... Was making it for less fortunate children in Africa and other 3rd world places that would run a Unix type software

rinn, the Eee PC and the OLPC (one laptop per child) are very different goals,but similar result I guess.
OLPC was designed to be a $100 laptop for developing worlds, but the price has nearly doubled I think now.

Eee PC is a commercial product. The screenshots above show it running WindowsXP, but current version all run a version of Linux to keep costs down. A later release will include XP but will cost more (gotta pay MS for XP).
You could buy an EeePC, and install XP on it. The hardware inside is generally standard PC hardware, but some drivers might be hard to find.
I think these are a good idea for people who don't want to lug a fullsize laptop around, and just need to be able to check e-mail and edit documents.
