Asus' Eee PC 900HA: now with Atom... now with an HDD

Yes, it's the 900HA - Ha! - a 160GB HDD-equipped alternative to the SSD-bearing 900A, an Atom-based alternative to the Celeron-fitted 900, an 8.9in alternative to the Celeron-sporting 701, a... well, you get the picture.

Amazon.com has the 900HA down for a mere $350 (£199/€252), though the retailer admits the Small, Cheap Computer's not actually out yet. There's no word yet on its official European pricing.
