Jkkmobile has been talking to everyone he can talk to about the Asus Eee PC 900, and he appears to have a few more details about the next generation ultraportable laptop. First up, it will sport nearly identical hardware to the current generation meaning you should not expect a touchscreen, faster processor, or anything else.

Second, he's received confirmation that the 900 series will be available in both Linux and Windows XP varieties. For some baffling reason, the XP version will have and 8GB SSD while the Linux version will have 12GB. I suppose this will help Asus sell both models for a similar price. But honestly, I'd expect Asus to offer 4GB, 8GB, and 12GB models running either operating system for a variety of prices.

While Asus has officially announced that the Eee PC 900 would be available in April, it's likely we won't see it until May or June.

Probably the most interesting update is that the demo units at CeBIT had a virtual 1280 x 800 resolution mode. What this means is that even though the laptop has a native display of 1024 x 600 pixels, you can select the higher resolution and display windows that are too large to actually fit on your screen. As you move your cursor to the edge of the screen, your desktop will slide until you hit the end. Currently the only way to do this is by installing an unofficial graphics driver.
