British Eee PC owners getting battery upgrade

Eee PC 900 lovers here in the UK have probably noticed their dinky laptop’s battery has been struggling to pass the hour and a half mark before

Which is why Asus is set to announce today that they’re offering a battery upgrade for us Brits. The scheme will let Eee 900 owners get hold of a heftier battery for just a tenner. Be better if it was a freebie, but at least they’re listening.

This will bring British models into line with their American cousins. Asus’s Stateside efforts currently pack in a 5800mAh battery, rather than the paltry 4440mAh version here.

An Asus spokesperson has told us we’ll be getting an official announcement later this afternoon, so keep it here for a full update as soon as we get it.
