The ASUS Eee PC 900 is an ultra-mobile PC that has an 8.9-inch display and weighs less than five pounds. When announced in April 2008, a standout feature was the solid-state disk drive that the netbook uses for faster performance and improved data stability. The netbook is aimed at browsing the Internet on the go as it features wireless connectivity functions and a 1.3 megapixel webcam to allow Web conferencing. Before using the webcam, you must turn it on using the ASUS Eee PC Tray Utility, which ASUS has built into every 900 model.
