Plus, given its WiFi capabilities you’ll have internet access at your fingertips too!

Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful. With an Intel Atom processor and a 20GB Hard Drive this model is more than capable when it comes to keeping up to date while on the move.

So, if it’s a mobile laptop you’re, or even just a second laptop for internet browsing the Asus Eee PC 901 is an ideal choice.


Questions & Answers

Question from Mike: Asked on 03/02/2009 I sometimes want to use my nokia 6100 mobile as a modem via a data cable - it works on my PC with OS Xandros 4.5 - which I believe is the OS on the Linux version of the 901 - so do you expect I'll be able to use the mobile in this way on the Linux EEEPC 901 ?

Answer from SteveF Yes.

Question from Rico: Asked on 24/01/2009 im traveling to usa with this laptop does this come a plug converter to use in america and if not do you sell the accessorie that i can use with it?

Answer from SteveF It doesn't come with the laptop but have a look under universal power supplies and there should be something that will do the job.

Question from LD: Asked on 18/12/2008 Hi,
Will you be able to install itunes on the win version?

Answer from Matt Yes.

Question from Dawn: Asked on 03/12/2008 Does this product have a cd drive?

Answer from SteveF No it doesn't.

Question from G_Doors: Asked on 14/10/2008 HI, do you have this and the acer aspire one A150L in stock at Huddersfield?, I am looking at calling in to buy one on friday.

Answer from SteveF Yes we do.

Question from Traveltomo: Asked on 07/10/2008 I have been advised that the Asus eee PC is not compatible with AOL broadband irrespective of the wireless router used. Is this correct? I have AOL Broadband with a netgear wirelesss asdl router using WEP.

Answer from Matt It seems to be possible to get it working on Linux but not easy from what I can see. Unless you are an advanced user I would recommend sticking with Windows.

Question from Hippo: Asked on 11/09/2008 Still waiting and still receiving standard out of stock emails. When I rang sales staff they were unable to give eta. Surely you must have some idea. It's very frustrating to have paid for product and not even have an eta. Please let me and others know.

Answer from Easycom Sorry the lack of info but this down to Asus and not ourselves. We have been given so many dates for stock coming that have been and gone and so now will only give a time for delivery once we have solid information.

Question from Sean: Asked on 10/09/2008 waited 4 weeks for this item. gotten sick of waiting, cancelled the order for one reason alone:

I can understand if Asus have been causing the issue, that I can forgive. but you have a website that has *always* said 2-7days delivery. Given you know full well this isn't the slightest bit close to the truth, I'm rather annoyed at laptops direct's handling of this.
at least say awaiting stock, don't lie!

Answer from Easycom Appolgies for the delay but we have also been at the whim of Asus's release dates for at least two months now. It appears that they were a little too eager with the release date and have since put it back more times than I can mention, and always by a week or so which is why the stock said 2-7days. We do not lie but we do have to rely on information from the manufacturers. Please call our sales team for a more accurate delivery date.

Question from Lynds: Asked on 03/09/2008 I have been waiting for this laptop since July. Is there any sign of it? I was told 3rd September but now your sales people are saying thats not the case

Answer from Easycom We have been given several dates from Asus and it appears they have put the date back again so unfortunately we are still waiting for stock.

Question from Anxious: Asked on 03/09/2008 Hi, I notice a number of people have asked during the past few days if stock has arrived, but according to your product list there is stock. If I order today, will I receive the Asus Eee PC 901 Linux (EEEPC901-BK006) tomorrow? Thanx.

Answer from Easycom Sorry, still waiting on stock.

Question from Hippo: Asked on 01/09/2008 I ordered and paid for my eeepc on 15th Aug after being assured by one of your sales staff that there would be stock on the 19th. So far all I have recieved are emails telling me that there are none in stock!!! Can you please let me know when I will recieve the product I have already paid for???

Answer from Easycom Sorry about that. We have received several dates from Asus for the release of that product and they have let us down each time. Please call our sales team and they can chase up the latest delivery date we have been given.

Question from JK: Asked on 28/08/2008 I paid for the product 2 weeks ago, since hardware prices are falling faster that you can deliver will you payback the difference. And can you give us a coorect estimation when the product will be available? I'd also like to get the fast shipping fee to germany back cause it seems this could still take a while Thanks for help.
