With low-cost notebooks such as Asus' Eee PC being all the rage these days, Acer is reportedly considering to enter the emerging market. According to Acer Taiwan president Scott Lin, the company recently formed a team to begin working on projects for the sector.

But the market for low-cost PCs is still uncertain and the popularity of Linux platform is still under evaluation, according to Lin, which is why the company is still considering whether to launch any products. He then highlighted that Acer has not yet budgeted any R&D funds for the low-end PC project and that the company will continue to focus on its typical notebook product lineup in 2008, so we probably won't be seeing an Eee PC rival from Acer anytime soon.
