LXer: $50 more for Linux Eee PC 900 – what gives Asus?

Published at LXer:

And there we were believing that we could trust a vendor like Asus. The line they’ve spun to journalists in Australia about the Linux Asus Eee PC 900 being $50 more than the Windows version because it has more storage is a load of bull. Overseas, both models are the same price! Just for background, two days ago Asustek Australia announced the Eee PC 900 (the one with the 8.9 inch screen) would go on sale at the end of May with both Linux and Windows XP Home models. The Linux version would retail for AUD$649, while the Windows version would sell for AUD$599.
