A quick search at ebuyer.com has shown that they are now stocking 2 of the 'atom' based EEE PC's

NB: They also have the 80GB HDD (non-SSD) model in stock for £336.62:
EEEPC1000H-BK007X 10IN Intel Atom 1GB 80GB Webcam Windows XP
URL: ebuyer.com/pro…026

No sign of the Linux Atom's, yet.


Ps: My first 'deal'.
Pps: Let's try to leave discussion as to whether you'd be better off with a 'proper' laptop out of it. I'm posting this, as someone may be looking to buy one. I know I'm waiting for the Linux-based 901's to appear myself.

edit: now down to £307.70

Can't see the point in these myself. Better off with a proper laptop :giggle:

I have one of the old EEEPc`s, and i`m replacing it with the offering from PC World. £280 delivered and better specs - it is branded Advent but is the MSI Wind in reality.

Voted hot because it`s a good machine, but there are better out there now for less money.

agree the msi from pcworld is a better offering. Have a 701 eeepc may have to upgrade.

I posted a comment on the ebuyer forum for the 12GB WinXP to say it was cheaper at Amazon....
Needless to say, ebuyer have dropped the price!!

Now £307.70inc vat (free delivery on super saver) - 36 left in stock (as I write).

There is ]talk in the States of Asus offering $100 off of the 900-models (non-Atoms - Celeron based) to help clear stock. Be aware - may filter down into UK market.

That should mean approx £50 + vat + more tax but seeing as it's a discount then the chances of being that high are getting on close to zero :-D

I'm posting from the Advent 4211 (MSI WIND) and have to say, what a great machine BUT I need more battery life. Might return this and purchase a 901. :?

No way will I pay more than £300 for one though. Just not worth it. :x

The 900 has already been reduced in the UK, although some retailers like ebuyer continue to rip people off.

You can pick up any variant of the 900 for £250 now easily.. (perhaps slightly less in the near future, I've seen at least one retailer hint at the £235 mark) I'm on holiday now with my 900 bought last week.. the 901 wasn't available nor did I want to buy the Advent as it had no track record. I'm not disappointed as the 901 isn't as cheap as it should be so I haven't lost out.
