The Eee PC family expands even further

The ASUS Eee PC family recently expanded even further with the addition of the $299 2G Surf model. Newegg now currently lists ASUS Eee PC 2G which is available in Galaxy Black, Blush Pink, Sky Blue and Lush Green.

The Eee PC 2G Surf, as its name implies, only comes with a 2GB solid-state drive (SSD). The device also comes with 512MB of DDR2 memory and the 4G Surf's smaller 4-cell 4400 mAh battery (2.8 hours).

ASUS first announced the Eee PC with a $199 price tag. When the Eee PC 4G first appeared online, however, the retail price was $399. Over the past few months, ASUS has expanded the family to include the $349 Eee PC 4G Surf and the $499 Eee PC 8G.

The $299 price tag of the Eee PC 2G Surf brings the price point closer to ASUS' original vision and should help the company reach its 3.8 million sales goal for 2008. Considering that ASUS recently expanded its warranty coverage to allow users to upgrade the system memory on Eee PCs, the new $299 Eee PC 2G Surf should appeal to value-oriented shoppers and tinkers alike.

The only sticking point that may remain for potential customers with the Eee PC 2G Surf is the meager 2GB SSD. While 2GB is definitely not a lot of space to work with, a $30 8GB SDHC card could go a long way to suppress any concerns over running out of storage space.
