Eee PC 904 specifications published – no Atom
However, this will be added to in the next couple of weeks with the arrival of the Asus Eee PC 904. The chassis is the same as you’ll find on the Eee PC 1000, which is the 10-inch model of the range, but with a subtle difference: the screen will be the same 8.9-inch (1024 x 600 pixels) display used on the 901.
Confused? What this means is that while the screen sits in a bezel it helps keep the weight and price of the machine down. More importantly, it means you’ll be able to take advantage of Asus’s new fuller-sized ‘Comfortable’ keyboard instead of the smaller ‘Compact’ one.
The thinking behind the 904 is to offer a full range of machines from the entry-level 701 through to the 10-inch 1000H, with those looking for a larger keyboard but slightly more cost-effective option opting for the 904.
Whereas the pricing of the 1000 will start at well over ?300, the 904 will retail for just ?269 (inc. VAT), when it ships in mid-July.
