ASUS Eee PC 900

ASUS' rumored 8.9-inch version of the Eee PC has been formally unveiled, say reports from this week's CeBIT expo in Germany. While there is no evidence of WiMAX support, the notebook should be enhanced in a number of other respects, such as a larger trackpad and support for resolutions up to 1024x600. Despite theoretically consuming more power, the new Eee's battery life is said to range between 2.5 to 3 hours.

Memory consists of 1GB of RAM, and up to 12GB of permanent storage, a jump from the current storage maximum of 8GB. No processor specifications have been announced; it is suspected, though, that the computer may use one of Intel's new Atom processors, formerly known as either Silverthorne or Diamondville. The Eee PC 900 12G is due to launch in the middle of the year, costing 399 ($606). [via DailyTech]
