Asus Eee PC 901 20G Linux Edition


#1

I’m going to have to get one of these things at some point.  Great bang for the buck! :sunglasses:

I’ve got two 701 4Gs to unload before I grab one, and the price is a little high yet on the 901s. $55 more wholesale than the cheapest Acer 15" with VisDuh.
If they’d offer them without the 16GB SD plugin and drop the price $100 that would be good.


#3

Damn! I was gonna grab one for a belated “Fathers Day present for myself” today and they’re out of all but the XP version…


#4

Where are you guys finding these?  How much for the Linux version?


#5

I’ve only read the one review that I posted, I haven’t been able to find a price list for the unit yet.  It sure looks like it’ll be good though.


#6

Royal Bank giving them away  :smiley:


#7

That’s the 701, the older one with the small screen.


#8

Maybe the Royal’s where we should open our new joint account… :smiley:

ncix has them listed at $549 but not in stock. Source in PG had the 4G for $469.

I’ll be doing $569 pre-orders, $579 off the shelf, but can only get the white XP model (bleagh!) right now. I’ll call to find out when the Linux model gets restocked today.

It looks like Asus is getting XP licenses for under $26. Too bad we can’t get it that cheap!
