Our buddy Brad Linder at Liliputing spotted ASUS offering a $100 rebate on its $549 Eee PC 900s. This would bring the price of the Xandros Linux, 8.9-inch and Intel Celeron M powered mini-notebook down to $449. The rebate seems to be available right now on ZaReason. This seems like a smart move on ASUS’ part since its 901 and 1000 series (and maybe even a 903, 904) sporting the latest Intel Atom processor will be the likely choices by consumers and retailers. Of course eventually, you will be able to get an MSI Wind for $499 and that will sport a larger 10-inch screen and the Atom processor. What this price drop doesn’t answer is if an Intel Atom Eee PC 900 is headed our way for $399.
