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.

    Sticker says: "Designed for Windows XP". I wouldn't even thinking of running Vista on those. But this platform would indeed be interresting for running Linux on. Perhaps Ubuntu?

    I was wondering if the 901 still has 4GB soldered on the mainboard (like the 900), or does it have a 12 / 20GB removable SSD?

    These things are such ripoffs. Unless they below 300 they are overpriced

    I'm more stoked about the MSI Wind at this point.

    The Intel Atom processor is simply amazing with its power and functionality! I love the whole new creation of step by step tutorials drawing how to draw easy and simple and this processor is just cool!
