Eee PC 901 adds Atom and Bluetooth for $650

The Eee PC 901 is the next upgrade to Asus’ line of ultra-portable laptops.

The 901 builds on the growing success of the Eee PC 900 by adding a battery life boosting Intel Atom processor and integrated bluetooth, plus some cosmetic touches such as metallic alloys accents to the keyboard, touchpad, and hinge.

It will be released (probably in Asia first) on June 3rd for “below” $650.

What isn’t clear is if that price is for a Windows XP version and whether there will be a less expensive Linux version. If that is the Linux price then the Eee PC 901 will face stiff competition from the slightly larger but substantially cheaper MSI wind.
