ASUS is expanding the Eee brand to motherboards. DigiTimes writes a Eee branded motherboard lineup from ASUS will be released in Q1 2009.
In addition to the Eee PC and Eee Box, and previously announced all-in-one PC, Eee Top (previously known as Eee Monitor) and Eee TV, Asustek is also planning to add a motherboard line under the Eee family during first-quarter 2009, according to industry sources.
The Eee Top will come in two versions, 16-inch and 19-inch, with pricing staring from US$450, noted the sources.
ASUS also commented on the allegations that some of its Eee Box PCs shipped infected with a virus. The firm claims this virus probably got on to the systems via a USB drive used for system testing and inspection.
