ASUS EeePC 900

PC Magazine
26 March 2009
  • Conclusion: The EeePC 900 is now $550, but you get an extra 16GB SSD drive, a wider 8.9-inch screen, and 1GB of RAM.
  • Pros: Amazing bargain. Added an extra 16GB SSD drive. Wider screen. Designed like any other high-end laptop. Integrated webcam. Three USB ports. Good speakers. Xandros Linux is speedy and solid. Comprehensive software bundle.
  • Cons: Not powerful enough to stream audio and video from an external optical drive. Cramped keyboard. Terrible mouse buttons.

Review: Asus Eee PC 900

Wired
1 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Asus’ long-awaited 9-inch (well, 8.9-inch) version of its groundbreaking Eee PC 4G arrives with all the familiar trappings installed. But this time it’s a little bigger — in more ways than one.
  • Pros: Positively pint-sized, just 3 ounces heavier (2.2 pounds) than the 7-inch model. Window XP model available (same price, but drops total storage from 20 GB to 12 GB). Excellent component upgrades over 7-inch model.
  • Cons: Price now flirts with full-sized notebooks. No 802.11n. Multitouch-like trackpad features are simplistic and underdeveloped. Some fan noise. Uncomfortably dim screen.

ASUS Eee PC 900 (Linux) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 May 2008
  • Summary: The Linux-powered ASUS Eee PC 900 markedly improves on an already solid mini-notebook. Though the system is $150 more than its predecessor and has an hour less of battery life, those longing for an ultra-mobile system that sports a larger screen and more storage space will find the Eee PC 900...

Asus Eee PC 900 Win ( Windows XP)

CNET
18 April 2008
  • Summary: We can't really recommend the Windows version of the Eee PC 900 over its Linux counterpart, primarily because you get nearly twice as much storage space in the Linux version. If you really can't live without XP, then we recommend buying the superior Linux version and installing XP yourself
  • Pros: Larger screen; multi-touch mouse trackpad works in Windows XP.
  • Cons: Keyboard is fiddly to use; no 3G datacard.

Asus Eee PC 900 Review

Digitaltrends
26 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The Eee PC is certainly an interesting product, and is a very good product for just $400 USD. That said, its usability is somewhat limited by its small screen, small storage and Linux environment.
  • Pros: Decent battery life; highly portable; lots of useful software
  • Cons: Tiny keyboard is hard to type on; screen is very small; system is not for everyone

Affordable ultra-portable notebook

Good Gear Guide.au
17 June 2009
  • Summary: Even if you've never used Linux before, the Linux version of the Eee PC 900 is worth considering. It's more expensive than the Windows XP version, but it does have a larger internal storage capacity, and we feel that it's easier to use.
  • Pros: 1024x600 resolution, 20GB solid-state hard drive, easy to use, quiet, very easy to carry
  • Cons: Hard to type on, no Express Card slot, mixed results when playing video files

Asus Eee PC 900 review

Stuff.tv
22 April 2008
  • Summary: We couldn’t get enough of the original EeePC 701. It’s a miniature marvel, and the perfect tool for blogging on-the-move. But the launch of the more expensive 9in EeePC 900 raises an interesting question – was it the innovative design and non-Microsoft OS that everyone loved, or just the price?
