As part of inventory sales, netbook makers are dropping the prices for their 8.9 netbooks and apparently for smaller sizes ssd-based.

Now the only [...]
The original plan for Asus Eee PC 900 in Japan is to have a single MLC 16GB SSD, and it seems to be too slow for the Japanese. So instead of dealing with irate customers coming back and complaining, AsusTek anticipated it with their last minute initiative.

For some of you who are in doubt about which is better between the 2 netbooks, here are some ideas that might be of help.

I was able to install it without any hassle, though with minor inconsistencies with the expected result. After all, my Eee PC is now closely similar to Ubuntu Mobile.
The Ubuntu Netbook Remix comes with several [...]
While the release of the Eee PC 901 Atom-powered processor has been announced officially (DigiTimes), it's not the same with 3.5G version. A question during the Press Launch in Manila was raised by Yuga if they are going to release 3.5G version in the future and the answer was clearly NO.
