Web Site Posts Upcoming Eee PC Mini-Notebook Images

The teardown of the Asus Eee PC 900, which includes photos of the notebook's innards, was taken from an FCC filing.

A teardown of the upcoming Eee PC 900, the 9-inch version of Asus' popular mini-notebook, was posted Wednesday on the Web.

More than two dozen pictures, including photos of the notebook's innards, were posted on the tech blog Engadget. The pictures were taken from a filing with the Federal Communications Commission, the site said.

Asus showed off the Eee PC 900 early this month at the CeBIT trade show in Germany. The notebook, scheduled to ship this summer, comes with an 8.9-inch screen, 1 Gbyte of memory, and up to 12 Gbytes of storage on a solid-state drive. The computer will be available with Windows XP or Linux, and will have a starting price of 399 Euros, which is about $629. The company has not released U.S. pricing, and has not said in which countries the mini-notebook would be available on its initial launch.

Asus was not immediately available for comment on Wednesday.

Eee PCs, which are also available with 7-inch screens, originally shipped only with Linux. At CeBIT, however, the company added Windows XP as an option and said Microsoft Works and many of the Windows Live applications would come preloaded with the system.

Asus claims to have sold more than 350,000 Eee PCs since its introduction in October 2007. The Taiwanese company says it's on track to sell between 3 million and 5 million units by the end of this year.

With prices as low as $300, the 7-inch Eee PC has become a favorite of hardware hackers who have customized their machines with features such as an internal GPS and Bluetooth modules. The success of the device has also attracted competitors. Everex in January showed a $399 ultra-mobile PC called the Cloudbook at the Consumer Electronics Show.
