If you haven’t been able to check out an Asus Eee PC in person yet, you’ll soon have a chance to at Best Buy.

Laptop Mag is reporting that the 7-inch version of the Eee PC (the same one that you can find online and at other retailers like Central Computers right now) will be available pre-loaded with Windows XP Home for $399 in April.
