Asus Eee PC 900 launching 5/12 in the U.S. at $549

Asus Eee PC 900 launching May 12 in the U.S. for $549.

The upcoming 9-inch version of the popular Asus Eee PC has already been spotted in Europe and Asia, but details about an American launch were scarce--until now.

Sources at Asus tell us the Eee PC 900, which we discussed in detail earlier this week, will be available in the U.S. starting May 12 for $549. That's a little more than the $500 figure everyone was assuming, and certainly more than the $399 7-inch version.

For the extra money, you do get more system RAM (1GB vs. 512MB), a higher 1,024x600 screen resolution, and more solid state hard-drive space--12GB in the Windows XP version and 20GB in the Linux version.
