Photo Review on My ASUS Eee PC 900

The ASUS Eee PC 900 features a 8.9″ active matrix TDT LCD screen with 1024×600 resolution; 1GB DD2 Ram; 20GB SSD and 1.3 mega-pixel camera. My Eee PC 900 runs on Linux and Firefox browser.  The whole thing do look small and feels incredibly light at 990g.  The wireless connection is slow at disconnecting and connecting but nonetheless still pretty smooth.

Retail price at HK$3,998 (US$513), but because of limited stock available at present, prices are up to HK$4,488 in Mongkok Computer Centre and HK$4,688 in Wanchai 168 Computer Centre.

As the Windows XP version are not available yet, expect another HK$680 if you want the retailers to install a copy of Windows XP licence for you, that is, if you can’t wait till they formally release it.  As for the screen protector, you can get it for around HK$150 (tight fit).

On the left side, a Ethernet Lan port; USBx1; Head-out and Mic-in, speaker at the bottom.

On the right hand side, a SD/SDHC Card Reader; USBx2; VGA-Out and Kensington lock.

One of ASUS’ secret weapon, the Multi-touch that resembles that on the MacBook Air. Basically, it’s a two-finger gesture zooming in and out function for viewing photos and documents.

Size comparison with my Fujitsu T2010.
