DigiTimes reports Asus has dropped its first quarter Eee PC shipment forecast from one million units to around 700,000 to due manufacturing problems:
Although orders in the first quarter of 2008 have already surpassed one million units, problems with 8GB Eee PCs mean that shipments of that model will be delayed to the second quarter, added the paper.

Asustek recently admitted that it had discovered some minor hardware issues relating to the flash-based storage in the 8GB Eee PC, therefore the company was forced to delay shipments to the market.
