Asus plans on launching a desktop version of its low-cost Eee PC in 2008, according to the company’s president of marketing Jonathan Tseng. While specifications aren't known and price is yet to be determined, Tseng was able to confirm that the desktop Eee PC would not include a display.
The Linux-based Eee PC laptop has proved a big hit worldwide, with around 5,800 Eee PCs being shipped each week and total shipments already surpassing the 100,000 units, according to DigiTimes
. However, fierce competition in the low-end budget market, plus the growing trend of notebooks replacing desktops will probably be the main obstacles Asus will have to overcome in order to replicate that success in the desktop market.
