Get it while it’s hot – the new 10″ Asus Eee PC 1000HE is actually showing up in stock at Amazon.com.
This is for the 1000HE (EPC1000HE-BLK005X) (Black) edition.
It’s listed with the $25 dollar discount – $374 (USD).
The blue model, 1000HE (EPC1000HE-BLU002X), is still showing 2-4 weeks.
– Asus’ higher-capacity high-density 6-cell battery
– Intel Atom N280 (1.66GHz)
– 1GB RAM
– 160GB HDD
– Windows XP Home
Between the higher capacity 8700-mAh battery and ASUS’ Super Hybrid Engine claims over 9 hours of battery life, however a more realistic/normal usage would probably be over 7 hours, which is what LAPTOP Magazine got in their battery tests.
This maybe the first time they’ve been in stock at Amazon – they were in stock briefly at a few other places last week, however I’ve talked to a few people who have already had them ship from Amazon (the first batch probably sold quick which is what led to the 2-3 weeks shipping dates).
