ASUS Eee PC 900AX: 8.9-inch netbook revived

ASUS Eee PC 900AXNetbooks have generally grown in size since they were first launched back in 2007. So it seems somewhat strange that Asus has resurrected the 8.9-inch netbook with the Eee PC 900AX.

However, rather than taking the opportunity to redefine the 9-inch form-factor this appears to be more of the same with specs from yester-year. This 8.9-inch (1024 x 600) netbook sports a 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor, 1GB RAM, a 160GB HDD and Windows XP. Other features include two USB ports, Wi-Fi (b/g) and a 4-cell battery. Availability remain a mystery for now.

Asus Eee PC 900AX, 1201K and 1201X netbooks uncovered

Asus Eee PC 900AXA new Asus Eee PC 900 model passed through the FCC yesterday. The 900AX is likely to be an 8.9-inch model powered by an Intel Atom processor running either Windows XP or Linux. Given the age of this line of Asus netbooks I’d be surprised to see it turn up in Europe or the US, although there may be other regions that Asus is planning to target with this netbook.

A couple of new 12-inch model names were unearthed too. This includes the Asus Eee PC 1201K and 1201X. These models were spotted over on Asus’ support pages. As to how different these are to the current 1201 range remains a mystery for now.
