ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

ASUS Eee PC 900AX resurrects 8.9-inch netbooks

You could be forgiven for assuming the 8.9-inch netbook segment had died; while we've seen a few convertible tablet netbooks using sub-9-inch panels, predominantly to shave off a few extra millimetres from a machine intended to be carried around, regular netbooks have gravitated to 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 panels.  So, quite a surprise to see the new ASUS Eee PC 900AX, an 8.9-inch relaunch... with a few caveats.

DIY ASUS Eee PC 900HA touchscreen upgrade tutorial

Some of our most popular netbook pages here on SlashGear are those describing DIY touchscreen projects, where a touch-sensitive layer is added to the budget ultraportable's display.  There are already kits available on eBay and elsewhere offering straightforward 7- and 8.9-inch panels, but what we've lacked to date is a really simple tutorial - something that takes you from stock Eee PC to touchscreen marvel.  Happily, courtesy of argentum, such a guide is now available.

ASUS Eee PC 900A: Atom in an older casing

ASUS Eee PC 900A: Atom in an older casing

It's not a proper day if there's no new Eee news choking it up, and ASUS are delivering the goods with yet another variation on the netbook theme.  Today it's the turn of the Eee PC 900A, an 8.9-inch screen version of the original Eee PC 900-series only packing Intel's Atom CPU rather than the Celeron-M which that range used to include.

Further close-up examination of ASUS' latest new facet to the Eee PC range, the hard-drive toting Eee PC 900 30G, suggests the notebook might be more interesting than first believed.  While the prospect of an Eee 900 with the SSD storage swapped out for a more mundane (though slightly larger) 30GB HDD doesn't seem too impressive, Mobile01's pictures of the unit's internal setup reveal that the way ASUS has fitted the drive itself may be the real development.

It's hard to think of a user left out in the cold from ASUS' vast array of Eee PC netbooks, but the company's Chinese arm seems to have tipped a new version.  Based on the existing Eee PC 900 design, it swaps out the usual 12GB or 20GB of SSD storage and replaces it with a 30GB hard-drive.

ASUS have previously said that, until the supply chain problems plaguing Intel's Atom processor are fixed, their Celeron-based Eee PC 900 will continue to be sold alongside the new, Atom-based Eee PC 901.  Although the 900 is cheaper than its eventual-replacement, you could be forgiven for wondering exactly how much more performance you get for your money.  MiniPCPro have managed to pick up a new 901 and benchmarked it against the older budget notebook; turns out, the differences aren't quite as clear cut as you might expect.
