Both Asus and Intel are expecting high growth for low-cost PC systems:
Intel expects low-cost PC shipments (including those for Internet-centric devices such as netbooks and nettops) to break 100 million units between 2008-2011, while Asustek president Jerry Shen expects the market to see shipments of 10 million units in 2008, and 20 million in 2009.

Intel has told notebook makers it forecasts both netbook and nettop products are to see double-digit growth annually in 2008-2011, with netbook total shipments from 2008-2011 to reach 47 million units and those for nettops to reach 60 million, according to industry sources.
