Kevin Tofel got an alert from a reader letting him know that Best Buy is now carrying the Asus Eee PC 900A for $299. The 900A model for those not keeping track, (which is just about everybody given how many Eee PCs are out there) is the 900 model with Intel’s Atom chipset. The model now at that price comes with 1GB of RAM, 4GB SSD and runs Linux.
Kevin seems excited about this breaking the sub-$300 barrier and I would agree. Although I’m not sure anything much is qualifying as an impluse buy these days given the economy.
