When the Eee PC first landed on the Australian market in December, it made huge waves due to its low price and ultraportable size. The original Eee PC came pre-installed with a version of Linux, but now ASUS has released a version that runs Windows XP. ASUS hopes most of its orders will come from the education segment, but retailers should also see the unit sometime soon.
Nevertheless, for basic needs, the Eee PC is now more desirable than ever. It's the perfect unit for Web browsing and word processing.
As for specifications, the Windows-based Eee PC retains the same hardware configuration as the original Eee PC; however, it does cost slightly more: $579 with Windows XP, as opposed to $499 for the original Linux version.
