ASUS boosts storage capacity on Eee PC 'HD'

Marketing causes ASUS Eee portfolio to spread

| Laptops News | Posted: Jul 2, 2008 7:58 pm

ASUS is clearly taking no chances with its Eee PC range. The ASUS Eee portfolio has been attracting and lapping up a great deal of media coverage recently, whilst ASUS can hardly be accused of storing all its eggs in one basket.

 

Spreading the Eee brand thinly appears to be at the forefront of the ASUS strategy, as details of how the upcoming Eee PC 904 HD is set to differentiate from its peers, are the topic of this report from Electronista.

 

 

We touched on the planned new Eee PC parade, earlier this week and, the story has developed further.

 

The 'HD' branding is, by accounts, proudly announcing the fact that the SKU features storage capacity, handled by a hard drive rather than a solid state drive.

 

It is believed that this enhancement will improve storage prospects, without any reflection on the price point. Previous iterations of the Eee PC that came preloaded with Windows XP, had the balance tipped against the favour of storage capacity, due to OS pricing, however this is something ASUS wants to change.
