As expected, Best Buy has put up a product page for an Eee PC running Windows XP. This is a 4GB model, with all the same basic specs as the first generation Eee PC we've come to know and love. The only difference is that it runs Windows XP. It has exactly the same price tag as the Linux version of the Eee PC 4G, which means that one of the following statements is probably true:

  1. Asus has brought down production costs
  2. Microsoft is has offered Asus a really good deal on XP licenses
  3. Some combination of the above
  4. Asus is selling so many of these tiny computers that it's willing to lower its profit margins a bit
Just to recap, here's what you get for $399:
  • 900MHz Celeron Processor
  • 512MB DDR2 RAM
  • 4GB solid state memory
  • 7" 800 x 480 pixel display
  • Integrated graphics
  • 802.11b/g, Ethernet
  • 3 USB 2.0 ports
  • 2 lb weight
  • Windows XP Home Edition
According to the Best Buy product page, the unit is available in most stores and orders placed online should ship within 1 day.

I just saw one at my local Best Buy. It wasn't labeled prominently as an Eee PC; instead it was just an "ultraportable laptop". Still neat.
