Meet Asus Eee PC 900HD


And as it's on FCC, it's coming soon..

Asus Eee PC 900HD





FCC label


Asus Eee PC 30G ( Asus China, with 30GB HDD )


Asus Eee PC 900HD



So another new 900... Is it still Celeron or is it Atom based as 900A ??

As you can see from the pictures, new 900HD has totally different design on the bottom side compared to other Eee 900s ( even compared to that China only 30G model )

Looks like they needed a lot of room there for something.. a 2.5 inch HDD maybe?

Other details are still confidential at FCC...

Thanks again FCC

The China 30G doesn't seem to have easy access to the RAM. Maybe that bump out on the cover of the 900HD is for access to the HDD and RAM.

30G has access to RAM:

This truly is stupid now. Way way way to many models.

the only thing i didnt like about the 900a was the SSD

so this could be perfect!

IMHO: Continuous improvement. More choice. Small incremental changes. The impact on market defines what changes stay and what goes.

Popularity contest is good thing if counting stock moved, assuming of course the market knows what it has and what it wants.

No, perhaps it's bad, impact on market is probably measured in $s profit so slow flash likely will stay if people lap up the cheap units

Yes, so I'm guilty of buying a slow new 900 to support that, but hey for me it serves it's purpose, later it will get upgraded with new flash when it's available and maybe it will find a whole new purpose.

I say keep it coming, more little changes more choices :-) but, is the brand getting too diluted and competing with itself, is that what 'England' is saying?

Variety is good. I like the 900 design better and hope that it'll come with an Atom processor and a hard drive. Maybe the 900AHD is next?

Saperalot said...

SSD is the future HD is the past. The only thing is, that SSD is now too slow and expensive, but we still waiting ...

Coninsan said...

I think i knwo whats going on under the hatch.
The SSD and PCI-E slot has been removed, and replaced with a HDD connected via a ZIF connector directly to the motherboard, like the 901's extra HDD option.
Compared to the 30G the HDD would be oriented horizontally, with esy access to the Ram.
Just guessing though :)

I wonder how many possible component permutations there are for Eee PCs? Case shape, case colour, case pattern, case scent, processor, RAM size, various SSD/HDD choices, webcam resoluion, Bluetooth option, etc, etc. That would give a theoretical upper limit for the total number of different models. Perhaps Asus is trying to find that number empirically.

db0b said...

Haha lol yeah perhaps they are :-)

db0b said...

Hmm maybe this one has room for a second mini pci-e slot for a radio module, to compete with the Dell 910?

This is getting annoying! They should stick with 2-3 models max in the eee PC class.

Anonymous said...

No, they can take a break from new models when they have the best top-of-the-class and budget models available at any given time. That means new models every now and then when technology advances.

They only need to stop slipping in annoyances like the poor battery and SSD of the 900A, or the ugly looks of the 901.

Can't they just make one awesome small laptop? with all the features we desire at a resonable price? GOD DAMN!

@Anonymous who said "Can't they just make one awesome small laptop? with all the features we desire at a resonable price? GOD DAMN!"


....SHHHHH!! You will give it away.

nsenzel said...

maybe this will make it cheaper because right now the cheapest of the 901's and above, and also the one with the most features, is the 1000H. Huh? oh yeah, it uses a HARD DRIVE. flash memory is cheaper by the minute, if asus would just be patient and wait 1-2 years, they could start making laptops much cheaper. But 1000H seems to work well enough. got one 2-3 weeks ago, pretty damn fast for $550 and 3.2 lbs.

All Eee PC with D are Celeron (D for Dothan)
A for Atom

Anonymous said...

H for HDD
1000HD = 10" + HDD + Dothan (Celeron)
900HD = 9" + HDD + Dothan (Celeron)

@Mithinco : 900AHD should be 9" + Atom + HDD + Dotan !! So it is impossible ;-)

- SDD HD 64 GB
- Atom 1.6 ghz processor
- Acer One Keyboard
- 2 GB ram
- 5000-6000 mAh Battery

Keep all that under a kilo, and I´m happy as a puppy

What about the 900ADHD ;)

Anonymous said...

That's why, I've decided to sell my pc 901 and buy Aspire one with 120GB HDD, the only thing I need from EEE is the battery.

Anonymous said...

so this is the 904 ? if so its been on the uk asus site for ages

Anonymous said...

No. This is the 900HD.

The Eee PC 904HD is the 904HD, with the 1000 sized chassis and 8.9" display with a thick bezel.

Fuckit!! - I'll just buy a MSI WIND when the 6 cell version comes out.

Anonymous said...

Keep 'em rolling out. What I am looking for is a 8.9" EEE PC (need the resolution for web browsing) with 4GB SSD, drop one USB port, replace it with one eSATA port that is bootable - I'll put my resource hogging OS on an external drive but keep a lean, zippy linux distro for general browsing and emailing. :) (I wonder why no laptop manufacturer wants to put a bootable eSATA port on their systems... perhaps someone is trying to disuade them from doing so?)

Anonymous said...

I have the version with 30gb HD, its a 900mhz celeron.

Anonymous said...

Hi,

Just to see if it's possible with a hd board of asus to install a hdd on my 900A.

Or buy the 900HD but bye bye ATOM...

Thank you, really well your site jkk ;)

sucks

Anonymous said...

If one of you have this Eee PC, could you say:
- how long battery goes
- speed of the HD (comparing to Eee PC 701 4G SSD)
- raw calculation power of Celeron respect to Atom

Thank you,

fc
