Oh, and what’s this I see? It’s the new Asus Eee PC 1000 running Windows XP SP2 (or 3?) in Chinese. It has an installed 80GB hard disk (not SSD) and seemed plenty quick even for my tastes. In fact, I tried the keyboard, too and found that it was quite pleasant to use. Priced at around NT$18,500, too.
It sported the new Intel Atom Chip at 1.6Ghz with a 10″ TFT screen at 1024X600 WVGA card. On board memory included 1GB DDRII, and 80GB (SATA). I also managed to find several other UMPCs at the new Kuang Hua Market in Taipei.
