The evolution of the product has moved at tremendous speed, and less than a year since its release we have seen Asus announce and released second-generation units and plan an entire library of hardware, including a desktop unit. Are they getting ahead of themselves, however?
If you have watched the Eee hardware from launch, you've probably noticed that the newer units are often being released with higher price tags than their previous generation cousins. In fact, the higher models of the Eee PCs are just as costly as an entry-level or even mid-range laptop. The selling points of the Eee are very attractive when you see them being sold at very low prices. Can the Eee continue to gain ground so rapidly if it is competing with a run of the mill laptop?
