At CeBIT 2008, Asus had a massive presence and managed to draw crowds wanting to get a closer look at the new and improved 8.9-inch Asus Eee PC.

The new 8.9-inch Asus Eee comes with more SSD flash storage, a bigger LCD screen with 1024×600 resolution, a better quality webcam. The same Pentium M 900 MHz CPU is the same as the original Eee.

See more details in George Ou's blog.

The Windows XP model comes with 8 GBs of SSD flash memory when the Linux model comes with 12 GB of SSD flash memory.

I wouldn’t doubt if people buy the 12 GB Linux version and use NLite to install a trimmed down version of XP though having Linux on this device is extremely useful if you’re going to use it as a security auditing tool.

The bottom line is that the Asus Eee is very pleasing in the hands and it runs Windows XP very quickly if you keep bloatware/crapware off of it.

Here’s a comparison of the older 7-inch Asus Eee versus the 8.9-inch Eee. As you can see, the screen is much bigger and the color and contrast appears to be much better.
