Wow! This is good news!

New Asus Eee PC 901 in France has high capacity cells and really fast 16GB SSD.

8700mAh 6 cell will give easy 7 to 8 hours on real use...

..and that SSD speed is super!

Right now we don't have info if this is France only and XP only, but we will keep our eyes open.

UPDATE: Faster SSD also on Eee PC 901 GO in Italy

Oh, please, we a similar "upgrade" to the 1000 model as well!

Wow. That approaches the write speeds of the 900HA hard drive, and totally destroys the read speeds of any other Eee product, HDD or SSD. Nice.

Is this a single fast 16GB SSD, or just one fast 4GB primary SSD and a slow 12GB secondary SSD?

KalvinKlein said...

Only ONE SSD with 16 GB

Georgiy said...

But it has a 3-cell 8700mah I though...

JKK said...

Georgiy, it's normal 6 cell...

JLM said...

Great upgrade!!!!!!!!!!
What about the price?
It´s higher than "usual" 901?
How can i differentiate "this" 901 from "usual" 901?

in italy they have the 901Go Telecome Italia Mobile (TIM) with the Single SSD 16gb

=> http://www.eeepc.it/en/recensione-eeepc-901go-hardware-benchmark/

that same price thant normal EEEPC 901 (399€), but you could see in Germany that the push out the older revsion for 299€. In france the 1000H is 399€ (370€) / 900A 299€ and Samsung NC10 370€ -399€

Single SSD is Great!!!!
Better for Mod.
Is this upgrade available for 1000 Series?
Sucess on SSD Week, JKK!!!!!

Georgiy said...

Really? Ami misreading something, becuase on the website it says

"After investigating the battery of new 901 is equipped with 3 cells Panasonic high-end "NCR18650": 3 cells only, but so what cells compared to those usually used. With a rated voltage of 3.6 V for a capacity of 2900 mAh, these cells are extremely powerful...3 x 2900 mAh 3.6 V in 8700 gives mAh with a voltage of 8.7 volts, a total much better than the 6600 mAh battery 7.4 volts of existing EeePC 901."

Frenky said...

So confuse... Is this 901 GO version with 3G capability? It's only single SSD? Where slave SSD? it batter have primary and secondary SSD I'm suppose...?!?

Pox said...

Wow... is the battery the same weight/size, and is it the same connector as the old 901/1000? I'd love to get an aftermarket 8700mAh battery that doesn't increase the bulk of my 1000H.

It is really starting to cheese me off that ASUS has all these different models and features for all the countries in Europe. What is so hard with one model for the continent? That and all these new models coming out almost weekly. It's like they want to purposely give people buyer's remorse.

Anonymous said...

With that battery its operating time would be great instead of just good.

I may have to change my 900A to one of those - again. :(

Adam said...

Hi,

Does anyone know any online shop selling these and sending to Ireland/UK?

Thx,

Adam

Does anyone know if this version will be available with german keyboard, soon?

Lenny said...

amazing :) I think it would be a nice thing to buy the battery as second one...

Anonymous said...

the battery pho clerly shows voltrage == 7,2V and capacity == 8,7Ah,
be it zero cell of hundred cells, we don't really care at all ! what matters is the Watt x Hour (Wh) rating.

Okay, so the MDD SLC drives for the Dell Mini 9 supposedly use Samsung flash chips but don't come anywhere near these numbers. How come?

Anonymous said...

the 16G SSD MLC with sasung chip : is with ne new machine like the new 901 16GB & the New 900D 16Gb

in fact, the new shipping from Asus have the new SSD and new battery.


In france : 901 & 900D with 16GB SSD
Italy : 901 GO with SSD 16B

What could be better is it also included 3G sim card slot for mobile broadband. Why only improve a bit here and there and expect user to yearn to upgrade when loaded with an earlier model. What is ASUS trying to do? Why couldn't ASUS follow ACER strategies just two models of ACER ASPIRE ONE with and without hard disk drive?

Anonymous said...

If the new 901 just have one SSD disk, does that mean that there are a connector free to be used for an secondary HDD/SSD ?

Does anyone know if this is available in Hong Kong yet?

Anonymous said...

How to tell these apart from older revisions in online shops? I fear retailers can't or won't differentiate between them at all. It would be even worse if the fast SSD and battery don't always come together...

OBrian said...

@ Willmaster: in Austria you get the 16gb version but with the 6600mAh battery and just in the 901 Go version with T-Mobile netlocked UMTS/HSDPA port :-(

Anonymous said...

Hello,
Where can i buy the 8700 mAh battery ?

I assume that this (8700mAh) battery fits other 901 and 901 GO models.

Hey, does anyone know if this one is avaiable in Spain?

Tracy. Toronto said...

I'm totally confused. I'm in Canada and the 901 I'm looking at has a 12GB SSD Windows XP. Tiger Direct is selling the black one for 449CDN$ and about 100$ more for white (?). So is this a single SSD? How can I tell what the online retailer is selling?

Anonymous said...

here in Japan I just got the 'new' 901 and it came with the 16 ssd but only a 6600mAh battery.

I wonder if can claim for a refund because there seems no way that it will get anywhere near the advertised 8-9 hours... I get around 5 at max, even with brightness on low settings and in power saving mode...
