Acer Eee PC rival arrives in 3 to 4 months

Posted on Thursday, Jan 17 2008 @ 00:05 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Computer maker Acer is working on a new low-cost notebook to compete against the Asus Eee PC. Asian newsreports write we can expect cheap Acer notebooks with 8" and 9" LCD displays in late first quarter or early second quarter of this year.
Prices of Acer's low-cost notebooks will be as competitive as those of the Eee PCs, the paper said.

Acer will outsource the production of its low-cost notebooks to Wistron, while purchasing LCD panels from AU Optronics (AUO), which will produce 8- and 9-inch panels at its fifth-generation (G5) production lines for both Acer and Asustek, the paper indicated.
