The Eee PC is finally available for purchase

The ASUS Eee PC coverage has been quite fierce here on DailyTech, but the pint-sized notebook is finally available for purchase. As reported a few weeks ago on DailyTech, Newegg is today one of the first to offer the Eee PC – one day earlier than originally expected.

Newegg is only offering one model of the Eee PC:  the 4G model. The 8.9" x 6.5" x 1.4", 2-pound Eee PC comes standard with an Intel Celeron M ULV 900MHz processor, a 4GB SSD, 512MB of DDR2 memory, a 7" 800x480 display, 802.11g wireless and three USB 2.0 ports.

The Eee PC 4G also comes equipped with an Asus-optimized version of Xandros Linux. Asus will offer a version of Windows XP on the Eee PC at a later date.

Battery life for the Eee PC 4G is pegged at around 3.5 hours according to most of the reviews from around the web. The battery used in the device has four cells and is rated at 5200 mAh.

Although the reported price for authorized resellers of the Eee PC is as low as $199, Newegg has priced the notebook at the suggested retail price of $399.99. You'll also cough up $10.03 for 3-day shipping.

For those that are looking to know even more about the Eee PC, there is no shortage of coverage. Notebook Review has two reviews of the device and you'll also find coverage at TweakTown, LAPTOP Magazine and Unwired.

7" screen with 704x396 or 1280x720 resolution (16:9 4tw)
Core 2 Solo ULV 1GHz to 1.2GHz (should be dirt cheap by April 2008, same TDP as the current one) or even better Core 2 Solo ULV on 45nm process (should be 1.5-2W less than the current Celeron M ULV 353)
945GU @ 133Mhz (host 533Mhz mem DDR2 400) only 5W TDP or the better chipset 945GMS/945GME @ 166/200 MHz 5.5-6W TDP with ICH7-U or ICH7-M
batteries last 6 hrs+
esata port. (ICH7-M has it, ICH7-U don't)-optional
max price cap at 500$ with all the bling (GPS,WiMax, etc)
512MB RAM DDR2 400/DDR 533 user upgradeable to 2GB, regular DIMM or SO-DIMM.
Windows XP customized by nlite , trimmed the fat, or ultra customized ubuntu.
hopefully it can decode 704x396 h.264 video :(, shame that GMA 950 doesn't offer any hardware accelerating :(
