Not available until 11 August, and not a bargain, I'm afraid, because this is the Asus recommended selling price.

Also, if you pre-order from Amazon you don't get the normal protection from them which covers you if they drop the price inside 30 days.

Best to wait until they have it in stock, and then consider buying it. I reckon once the initial rush of orders is over they'll have to drop their price to compete, particularly with other similar laptops soon coming on stream.

Hence to why the post says (Pre Order) why doesn't anyone read the post properly.

By the way the recommended selling price is £349 so do a little bit of research before you vote cold.

This is the best price by far than anything out there at the moment.

definitely cheaper else where.

I was perfectly aware that the post said pre-order, as you can see very clearly from the rest of the post. What it doesn't say, though, is that you have to wait nearly 3 weeks for delivery, hence my reference to 11 August.

And I think you need to do a little research yourself, as has been said. The only people selling this at £349 are those trying to profiteer from the initial shortage of this model.

See below re pricing:

"Asus has also confirmed the final pricing of the Eee PC 901 – both Linux and Windows XP models will cost £299 inc VAT, rather than the £319 we initially predicted."

Careful on that Morecomputers one - Linux with 12Gb SSD... should be 20Gb.
Probably a misprint.

I actually think that the Advent 4211 is better (based on the MSI Wind)

Available from any DSG company for £279.99

Runs XP Home, 80Gb hard drive, just over a kilo and excellent screen and full size keyboard.

My actual preference was with Acer Aspire One but as my pre-order was delayed, I cancelled and went with the available 901.
