    The ASUS Eee PC 4G is about to be joined by another, more expensive model. To the accompaniment of the previous 7" 800x480 display and a 900MHz ULV Celeron processor will come an 8GB SSD and 1GB of DDR2 memory changing the name to ASUS Eee PC 8G. The new 8G model comes at $499 with expected availability in mid to late December. Additionally ASUS will give users to choose between Pearl White or Galaxy Black colors with the 8G. In other Eee PC news, Mobile O1 has posted pictures of the upcoming green model. Unlike the Pearl White and Galaxy Black models, the entire notebook casing is not molded in the same color - instead, only the LCD lid is molded in green while the rest of the body (including the keyboard) is molded in white. The new green option will be joined by a sky blue and pink options in 2008.

    i expect Apple is developing a bubble busting device to corner this market too, for $500 Asus is saying to rival developers "undercut me please" and no doubt they soon will get tat wish.

    Totally agree, once there's competition in this market of notebooks, the prices will come down like it should. Competition=good :D

    No interesting UNTIL they get a decent screen on that thing. For basic emails, or skype, or messenger, it might be OK. But for any productivity applications, including internet, the screen res is WAY TO LOW.

    ASUS were supposed to do a "full screen" 1024x768 version. Where is it?
