Asus aims to ship 3.8 million Eee PCs in 2008

Posted on Friday, December 07 2007 @ 03:15:15 CET by

Asus unveils it hopes to sell 3.8 million Eee PCs in its next fiscal year. The firm also announced some of these notebooks may feature Windows XP:
One ASUS employee close to the project, speaking on terms of anonymity added, "Originally, we used Linux to save on the cost. However, after the launch, Microsoft contacted us to offer Windows XP with discount licensing."

The employee was able to confirm the Windows license will be a stripped-down version of Windows XP, specifically designed for emerging markets. This Microsoft-ready Eee PC will carry a premium somewhere between $30 and $60 over the base cost of the system.

The company already supports "unofficial" installs of Windows XP on existing Eee PCs.
