The Eee-PC 900 (Windows Version) will be shipped with a from Microsoft specially for UMPCs designed slim Windows XP version, called Windows XP Lite which is intended for use on such low-cost-notebooks.

Can a touch screen be hacked in? Will you do it if it can be done? Will any of the other hacks work? Does it have bluetooth? What is the actual working battery life you get from it? Does the multi-touch pad work in Ubuntu? How quickly can you type on it (let's see a video)? What does it look like next to a 12" PowerBook? After using both Eees, should I even consider using the 7" model whent he 9" exists? What date will I be able to have one delivered to my house? Does that plastic cover you said would be a good car mount fit the 900? How much RAM can it take? How good it the WiFi? What problems in the 700 does the 900 fix? Will you send me a free one?

Does the old adaptor works with the 900?

I look forward to your video JK. I wonder if the XP is a stripped down version if there would be some way to find out what's been removed so those of use with our own copies could make an nlited version.

I want to see hires pictures of all the internal spaces. Can the 2 partitions of the SSD be merged into 1?

@petrolias
The 700 used 9.5 VDC and the 900 uses 12 VDC.

can you boot from the larger ssd? is there a bios setting for that?

I can't wait for your review! I just want to see a comparison between the celeron and the atom, but that would have to wait until the atom gets released.

Please talk about the quality of the screen: sharpness, color, etc. I'm especially concerned about colors, since I want to use the 900 to do some photo work and too many laptop LCDs have abysmal colors (often too blue). Thanks!

How does it compare to a HP mini-note?

I've been watching some video reviews about the new Eee PC 900, and I came up with a new doubt:
Right now we have the Windows Eee PC 900 for the same price as the Linux Eee PC 900, but the Linux version has 8Gigs more of flash memory.
So when flash memory price start to drop, what will happen to both (Win/Lin) Eee PC 900 prices?
1- Will Asus drop the Linux Eee price acordingly and keep the Win Eee at the same price
2- Will Microsoft drop it's windows license price to still match the lower price of extra 8Gigs of flash in Linux Eee?
3- Will Asus increase the base flash memory in Linux Eee (say 32Gigs or 64Gigs?)

Interesting.. isn't?

I think users should be able to choose if they need 12 or 20Gigs of flash and also choose what OS they want pre-installed (Windows, Xandros Linux, Ubuntu linux, FreeDOS, ReactOS, or no OS at all).
Just because Windows might need extra storage, why should some Linux users pay more storage than what they need?

Will it have the same voice recognition than the eee701? I loved your video before. *web!* lol

Try to Mod the 1024x768 screen into the original 700 Body.

Travis said...

I have heard that the color bit depth is not so good on the 900. Please check.

Thanks

Did it come with the 4400 or 5800 mah battery?

Anonymous said...

1) How bad is the battery life in real use and

2) are there any 8.9" touchscreens in the market that the 900 could use (if there's still enough space).

Hi JKK, I am not sure if you know this already. ASUS is going to exchange the 4400mAH battery sold with the EeePC 900 in Hong Kong on the first day with a 5800mAH battery.
