Asus Eee PC 4G Windows XP Version To Be Available at Best Buy for $399 In April

When we spoke earlier this month with Asus CEO Jerry Shen, he revealed that Windows XP versions of the Eee PC would be coming to market soon. At the time we were so interested in the new 8.9-inch versions that we forgot to ask about the 7-inch version. According to Asus, the Asus Eee PC 4G Windows XP version of its notebook will be hitting the U.S. retail market in the first half of April. The hardware of the system will remain exactly the same, but it will run Windows XP Home. The 7-inch screen system will be available at Best Buy for $399 starting April 9th.
