Asus’ EEE Wants To Take Over Your World

tv2Asus seems to think it’s sitting on a gold mine with its Eee PC idea. So why stop at making low-cost and easy-to-use laptops? That is exactly what their President Jerry Shen seems to be thinking. According to DigiTimes, Asus is planning to launch a family of Eee products. These will include the E-DT (desktop PC), E-TV and E-Monitor. Shen said that the commonality will be their low-cost. There aren’t many details on the rumored products. The E-DT will be a desktop PC which will not be sold with a monitor. Rumors are that it will have an Intel Celeron processor and the price will be between $200 and $300. We have no idea how much RAM and hard drive space will be included. The E-Monitor will look to rival the all in ones. Apparently it will include a built-in TV tuner. Pricing will be around $500. The E-TV will head into the 42-inch LCD TV market, but will integrate the Xandros-Linux PC functionality of other Eee PC products. Pricing is said to be around $200 more than similarly-priced TVs. We will report back on what our Asus contact has to say about this expansion. Update: An ASUS Marketing Manager has confirmed that they are planning to do the E-TV and E-monitor in the Asia pacific region. It is still unknown if they will do something similar in the United States.
