A new cheap computer for Chinese people has been launched earlier this week by Dell:
The Dell EC280, priced at between 2,599 and 3,999 yuan (335 and 515 US dollars), was developed by engineers at Dell's China Design centre located in Shanghai, the company told a briefing in the east Chinese city.

"Today there are one billion people online worldwide and many of the world's second billion users are right here in China," chief executive Michael Dell said in statement. "We intend to earn their confidence and their business."

Dell announced earlier this month a 33-percent dive in fourth-quarter profits but it is ranked number three in computer shipments in China and saw a 26-percent increase in revenues in Asia's second-largest economy last year.
