The newly announced Eee PC 901 is based on Intel's new Atom processor and we've taken it apart. The Eee PC 901 uses the Intel Atom processor (leftmost chip under a thermal pad) but pairs it with a 945G chipset and ICH7M. It appears that Atom's Poulsbo chipset isn't quite ready yet.
We also have stock pictures of the Eee PC 1000, a larger unit with a more reasonable keyboard.
Finally, at Computex 2008 ASUS is also showcasing WiMAX support on its Eee PC lineup using an external WiMAX modem.
