Asustek delays Eee PC shipments

By on September 27, 2007, 6:34 PM
Even though Asustek's Eee PC was originally supposed to hit the market in the third week of September, the company is now expected to delay shipments of its low-cost notebook to the end of October, as the computer maker reportedly decided to install more Linux-based software on its notebooks to make the device much more attractive to end-users.

Despite of the setback, the company still plans to start shipments of its Eee PCs ahead of One Laptop per Child non-profit organization, who is expected to ship its XO laptops in November. The first Asustek Eee PCs are projected to cost between $199 and $369, depending on hardware configuration, and the company plans to ship 200,000 - 300,000 notebooks by the end of this year.
