Asus to launch £130 Eee PC in 2009

Categories: Computers & Accessories News   Tags: ,

If you thought the current Eee PC was affordable, just wait until you hear about what Asus has planned for next year. A company rep has announced that a $200 (£130) Eee netbook will be introduced in the first quarter of 2009.

Sadly the rep wasn’t so keen to spill the beans when it came to screen size, features and specifications, but given the ultra-low price we’d imagine things are going to be pretty basic: a Linux OS, 7-inch screen and possibly a cheap processor like the Intel Celeron M. Wi-Fi is a given, surely – but you can probably forget about Bluetooth.

Anyway, it’s all speculation until next year. There could well be an announcement at the CES show in early January.
