Asus may be promoting the new Eee PC 900 hard, but some potential buyers are waiting for the promised Intel Atom-based version. Well they might: in addition to a snappier CPU, it'll sport a swish new look.

So photos published by French-language fansite Blogee.net show. The shots sho a machine dubbed the Eee PC 901, and it's a more curvaceous beast than the current incarnation.

All the portage sported by the 900 is present and correct, but the current model's angles have been softened into a look that has something of the MSI Wind about it, we think. What, surely Asus isn't worried about its rival's offering, is it?

The 901 shots show a touchpad that's now almost flush with the laptop's casing, and a new screen-hinge with chrome-like ends. Between hinge and keyboard are what appear to be extra, slim keys, also kitted out in chrome.

Asus Eee PC and friend: more curvy model coming?

Asus has suggested that the Atom version of the 900 will appear over here toward the end of June following a formal launch earlier that month at the Computex show in Taipei.

June is the month in which Intel is expected to ship its 'Diamondville' Atom processor, a version of the Mobile Internet Device-oriented chip aimed at sub-notebooks and compact desktops.
