Hardware, Embedded Systems The Asus Eee PC will get an upgrade. "The next iteration of Asus's highly successful budget subnotebook, the Eee PC, has been unveiled at the CeBIT technology fair in Hanover, Germany. The Eee 900 will feature a larger screen than its predecessor, as well as more RAM, more storage and a larger keyboard. However, these enhancements will mean a slight reduction in battery life and a substantial increase in the cost of the device, relative to the first version of the Eee. The 900 will also come with pre-installed Windows XP as an option."

I can't imagine what someone would be doing on an EEE that could not be fulfilled with Linux and associated free software.

I have a friend who has one of these devices, and, for the most part, likes it.

In several cases, she's found that the windows program she uses has a Linux analog, but not one that's compatable with the flavor of linux on the eeePC.

(For example, Amarok *almost* works to let her sync her iPod.)

As for me? This "big" version is what I don't want.

I want a faster processor, more standard ram, and longer battery life more than anything else.
