Acer will launch low cost PC

Cheaper than Eee PC

| Posted: Mar 27, 2008 3:47 pm

According to Digitimes, Acer will leverage its large economies of scale to build and distribute a UMPC similar to Eee PC.

 

The device is said to be 8.9" long, and fits the "low-cost PC" profile. Asustek will launch its second generation Eee PC at around the same time, but supposedly there will not be a price war between the two giants of the PC world. They speculate that Asustek may launch their Eee PC product earlier to gain an advantage.

 


The report mentions that the Acer mobile will be cheaper by as much as $50 USD, with an average selling price (ASP) of $350-400 USD.
