According to news published today at Products Reviews .NET, Asus is releasing a version of its Eee PC 900 with a Celeron M processor. What happened here? Did Asus find that the new Atom or the previous A110 was not sufficient enough to bring a decent performance to this machine which will ship using Windows XP?
The original Asus Eee PC was a great little UMPC, however many of us knew that this was just a teaser until the launch of the Asus Eee PC 900. We thought that this slighter larger model would be a huge improvement on the previous model however, I was a little shocked to learn that they would still be using the 900MHz Celeron M processor.
If you check the title of my comment you are going to notice that I said ULPC and not UMPC. ULPC is a new name that is starting to be used by Microsoft: Ultra Lite PC. In another words, what was used to be known by Subnotebook. Please, do not confuse this with ULCPC, which means Ultra Low Cost PC.
The price of this ULPC will be around 500 to 650 dollars and there is not words of when or if it will be sold in USA.
