Asus Eee PC gets spec’d out

When it comes to a cheapo machine like the Eee PC, the spec that everyone cares most about is the price. For whatever reason, Asus is still playing coy on the pricetag for the little machine, even though it’s scheduled to launch before the end of the month. They are, however, releasing final specs for the U.S. market, so you can figure out which Eee PC is right for you. On the high end, we’ve got a machine with 1GB of DDR2 RAM, an 8GB SSD, a built-in webcam and a 5200 mAh battery that will see around 3.5 hours of life. On the low end, you’ll be getting 256MB of RAM, a 2GB SSD and a 4400 mAh battery that’s good for around 2.8 hours. All machines will feature a 7″ LCD display, Intel CPU and chipset, Ethernet and WLAN, will weigh in at less than 1kg and will run either Windows XP or the Linux flavor of your choosing (neither is included). Looks like these Eee PCs are going to be fairly well-equipped for their size–let’s hope that the low-end model manages to clock in at just over two Benjamins as was promised.
