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've seen and used my friend's eeePC in real life.

Until I'm able to feel how much a bigger battery will make it weigh?

What I liked about the current design is that it was so very light for all the goodness that it packed in.

I thought that, at last, I had found the perfect tool for letting me type up notes at panels, one that I could carry around all day and not break my (bad) back. But only if it had 4-6 hours of battery life.

And now I see that it will have even less battery life or, I will have to make it heavier.
