ASUS preps all-day runtime, Internet storage for Eee

ASUS Eee PC All Day

ASUS is planning to extend the Eee PC's capabilities within the next few months, according to one report. Although the company's Atom-based Eee PC 901 is already estimated to get near eight hours of maximum battery life, a future upgrade due in the last half of 2008 should give it "whole-day" battery life that potentially gives it an edge over challengers. It will also offer an Internet-based storage option similar to those offered by Dell and others and will help compensate for the limited built-in storage.

Besides these changes, the company also supposedly plans to make hardware and software updates "every month" for the Eee PC line, although the details of these early plans aren't mentioned. ASUS is already known to be making several sub-variants of its most recent Eee PC notebooks that include the Celeron-driven 904 HD as well as the 903, 905, and multiple versions of the 1001.
