Asus EeePC 900 SRP: Php24,995

Asus Philippines is still mulling over the suggested retail price of the newer Asus Eee PC 900. The firm handling the launching of the model next week indicated it will be Php24,995 but the final price will be revealed during the event.

All the while, units are already being sold on PC Corner with a price tag of Php 28,999. They previously listed this at Php33,900 (with 2GB of RAM).

Two flavors are currently available — a 12GB + Windows XP model and a bigger 20GB + Linux Xandros model. Both will have 1GB of memory on board.

P.S.: Bloggers interested in attending this Press Launch can leave a comment. I can recommend you on the Asus event list. This is on May 12, 10:30 AM in Makati.

    Comment for JHAY… My brother got one of those Compaq Presarios, a C700 (C733TU) which comes with Vista Starter edition, for P25,000. Since this Vista is a piece of c**p, I downgraded it to XP as soon as it bogged down (which it inevitably had to do, given the insufficient specs). Had trouble getting the audio and wifi drivers for XP. Seems to be a common -problem for this model. Still haven’t been able to get the microphone to work. Just a warning, in case you plan to downgrade the OS of the Presario.

    Still, P25 K is a lot of money for a umpc… especially since the competition is coming out with similar units at the current price of the eeepc (around US$400 or P16,000 – P17,000). I saw on the internet that there’s another atom based mini notebook with a 9 inch screen and Intel chipset coming out for the same price as the eeePC 701. You might want to wait a while.

    Just make sure you don’t get a VIA based mini notebook…

    Just to comment on the pricing: At P25,000 they would still sell mass quantities of this as it would be a perfect starter notebook that’s tiny. At P29,000 it will just be a niche product much like the more expensive small laptops are. I’ve seen PC Corner post the HP2133 for P32,000 which is crazy. They could have made an impact market-wise but there is not much value in that kind of pricing.
