Asus pitches 9in netbook

Hang on, doesn't it prefer 10in ones?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

After years spent telling us 10in netbooks are what we want, Eee PC maker Asus has relaunched its old 8.9in machine, the Eee PC 900.

Now called the 900AX, the netbook matches its predecessors' spec almost exactly. The original Eee PC 900 had a Celeron processor, but later revisions gained the 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270. And that's what the 900AX has.

Asus Eee PC 900 and friend: like nine inches, prefers ten

Like other 900-series Eee PCs, the 900AX comes with a 160GB hard drive and Windows XP. It has 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet and a trio of USB ports.

To be fair, for all Asus keenness to promote 10in netbooks, its 8.9in range never went away. The Asus website currently lists 11 "9in netbooks", including the Disney Netbook and two 8.9in tablet models. The remainder are all 900-series models.

Asus hasn't said when the 900AX will arrive over here, or how much it's likely to cost if it ever does. ®
