Were you about to buy an ASUS Eee PC just when you heard there might be a 10” model and so you decided to wait? Well you can go ahead and buy as there aren’t any plans, at least not by ASUS, to make a 10” model.

The rumors started at a German site. So a responsible member of the news media over at Eee User finally did something sensible and asked ASUS, their reply, well summed up it was “nope”. The 8G model will only come in the 7” size same as all the other models.

So, feel free to save up your $500 and go buy one of the 8G models at 7-inches. Really, I don’t think an extra 3-inches diagonal is anything big to worry about, sure, if it was really going to be made, it would have been nice to be able to pick up one with a slightly larger screen, but now that its not, I don’t think its going to be that big of a deal.
