Eee without Linux in Japan

ASUS' high-selling Eee PC has launched with some differences in Japan. Instead of the current 2G, 4G and 8G versions found elsewhere, Japan is getting the 4G-X, which by default comes loaded with Windows XP Home, instead of ASUS' modified Linux interface. The system is also said to have a 900MHz Celeron M processor, where Western Eees typically show a 630MHz clock speed. Finally, Japanese buyers get a 4GB SDHC card, effectively doubling the total storage capacity.

The computer should otherwise retain common Eee features, such as 512MB of RAM, a seven-inch 800x480 display, and three USB 2.0 ports. For Internet connectivity, the 4G-X has 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a 10/100 Ethernet jack, and a 0.3-megapixel webcam. It is available today for 50,000 yen ($468). [via The Register]
