New tips have narrowed down the US availability and pricing of ASUS' Eee PC X101. Both should be available this week and will have a wide price gap depending on the choice of OS. The more typical Windows 7-based X101H will cost $299, while Digitimes understands the MeeGo-running X101 will cost just $199.
The systems both have a MacBook Air-based design but vary widely depending on the choice of OS. ASUS runs the cheaper, less demanding X101 on a very low-voltage 1.33GHz Atom N435 chip but moves up to a much faster 1.66GHz Atom N455 for the X101H. Both are very minimal on storage and use an 8GB SSD along with 1GB of RAM for memory.
When they ship, they should be available in a conservative white as well as brown or red.
