Asus Plans More EEE Laptops With Celeron CPUs

Asus has continued its spell of launching Eee PC clones, by launching four new flavours to its Eee PC product range; however, the new additions are the modified versions of already existing 900 and 901 series notebooks.

The company has added flashy colours to the netbooks, and further imparted striking looks to the devices, as the new Eee PC 901 XP will now be available in a bright cherry red colour, and the Eee PC 900 XP has got new dazzling purple casing.

Besides the fluorescent colours, the company hasn’t bring any significant changes to the devices, and only the 901 PC is installed with the advanced Atom processors, while the 900 line still packs the common Intel Processors in it.

This is apparently due to the fact that Atom CPUs are in short supply worldwide (ed: Could this be the start of a conspiracy theory?)

Further, the two devices also differ in their storage capacities, as the 900 model has 16GB of storage, whereas the 901 boasts of 12GB storage capacity only, moreover, the former has the extended wireless support and crams 4-cell battery into it, and the latter offers 6-cell battery and the Draft-N wireless support to its users.
