I needed something at a local Best Buy this weekend and headed over to the closest one. They happened to have an Asus Eee PC 900A on one of the laptop endcaps (a display on the end of one of the laptop aisles). This is good from a visibility perspective, since it’s by itself and is highlighted, although I wonder if some people walk right past it without realizing what it was.
I also came across a case designed for netbooks apparently, the Case Logic e-sling (photos with the Asus Eee PC 900A)
The specifications of the 900A on display:
– Asus Eee PC 900A (White)
– Model: 900A-WFBB01
– SKU: 9050206
– 1GB RAM, 4GB SSD, Linux
– Price: $329.99 (I can’t explain the price – it maybe a clearance model)
These are also other Eee PC models available at some Best Buys if you are curious to see them at a Best Buy near you (check links below and then “Store Availability”):
– Asus Eee PC 900 EEEPC900-BK039X with Intel Celeron (SKU: 8905973) Black, $399.99
– Asus Eee PC 1000HD 1000HD-BKBB1 with Intel Celeron (SKU: 9050171) Black, $379.99
I snapped some photos, you can see them below (click “Read More” if you don’t see them).
Update: These do not have webcams. Also, that is the correct price, it’s a special model for Best Buy. Furthermore, Eee PC 1000HDs are showing up at Best Buy
