Last week, I menioned that Asus EEE PC 900As were showing up at Best Buy. Yesterday, I was at another store, and they were preparing to put a Eee PC 900A on display as well.
In today’s ad, they have both the Intel Atom-based 900A and the CeleronM-based 1000HD listed. The 900A is retailing for $329.99 and the 1000HD is retailing for $379.99 (USD).
Keep in mind that these appear to be special versions for Best Buy – they don’t have webcams and the storage is different than what you see elsewhere (for instance, the 1000HD you see at Amazon has a smaller HDD, but does have a webcam – the Best Buy version doesn’t have a webcam). As far as I know it has the same 6-cell battery that other 1000HDs have, but I will be investigating this myself.
The model #s are also unique – in the case of the 1000HD, it’s 1000HD-BKBB1
I’ve included an image of the ad as well as specifications below (click “Read More” if you don’t see it) and links to check your store availability.
