Asus says LED-based notebooks to gain popularity in 2008

Posted on Tuesday, January 23 2007 @ 01:10:43 CET by

ASUS already has one one LED-based notebook, the Asus U1F, but the company expects LED-based laptops won't take off until 2008.

Tony Chen, general manager of Asustek's notebook business unit, estimates the market will take off once LED backlighting accounts for 10% of the notebook market. He expects this will take place in 2008.

Chen claims the power consumtion of 12.1", 13.3" and 14.1" notebooks with LED backlighting as 1-2W lower than same-sized notebooks with CCFL backlighting, leading to 30-45 minutes more battery life.

The only problem is that LED backlighting is still 200% more expensive than CCFL backlighting, but it's expected this will drop to 120% in 2008.
