Asus just released their Eee 901 for sale in the US and all is well with the world...except for one thing. They built a bunch of Eee 900s that they have to get rid of. Remember the Eee 900? That was the original 8.9-inch Eee that used a Celeron processor instead of a shiny new Atom. Anyway, if you purchase a 900 between now and July 31st, Asus will give you $100 back. That brings the price to $450, or $150 less than a 901. So what's that Atom worth to you again? [ZaReason and Direct PDF Rebate Link via Lilliputing]
I guess it goes to show that this summer will see a hot battle for domination in the netbook and sub-notebook market.
Buy at your own risk if you really, really need that little machine before, say, late September.
Personally, I'm leaning towards the MSI Wind with its almost perfect hackintoshability (replace the wlan at an additional $20), and I'm curious to see what Dell has in store.
