ASUS Eee PC for under $300

While it may not be the promised new Eee PC model, an online Best Buy listing shows the first recent netbook from ASUS priced at just below $300. The listing is for the 1024x600 8.9-inch Eee PC 900A which comes with Intel's 1.6GHz Atom processor and features 1GB of RAM. To meet the low price point, the listed netbook's 4GB solid state drive is preloaded with the Linux operating system.

Last week, Asus CEO Jerry Shen went on record to promise the company will launch a new Eee PC model in 2009 that will break the $300 price barrier. He did not, however, mention price cuts to existing models. [via jkOnTheRun]
