Eee PC 900ASUS shakes up the Eee PC family

With increased competition coming from all sides, ASUS is finally taking steps to cut the prices of some existing Eee PC models. Today, ASUS announced rebates for its existing Eee PC 900 12G and 20G models.

Both models still retail for $549.99, but retailers like Amazon.com are now offering an ASUS-backed $100 rebate [PDF] to drop the price down to a more palatable $449.99. The price after rebate puts the two Eee PC 900 models beneath MSI's most expensive Wind which rings in at $499 with Windows XP Home and within striking distance of MSI’s $399 Linux model.

In addition to the $100 rebate, ASUS also today introduced a new Eee PC 900 16G model. As the name implies, this model features 16GB of flash storage space and the same hardware as the other members of the Eee PC 900 family (900MHz Celeron Processor, 8.9" display, 1GB of DDR2 memory). Newegg currently has the Eee PC 900 16G in stock for $399 when equipped with Linux. Models featuring Windows XP are priced at $449.

Rounding out today’s shakeup in the Eee world is news that the Eee PC 901 is finally in stock. Newegg currently has the Eee PC 901 12G (Windows XP) in stock for a whopping $599. As previously reported, the Eee PC 901 comes equipped with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 8.9" WSVGA display, and Windows XP Home.
