Intel wants to limit netbooks to the 300EUR price range

Posted on Wednesday, March 18 2009 @ 02:30:11 CET by

FUD Zilla reports Intel isn't too happy with the netbook market, as more and more vendors are introducing systems that cost as much as a real entry-level notebook:The big problem is that notebook sales are beginning to suffer at the hand of netbooks, and Asus and MSI want to charge consumers €550 and €699 for Atom based Macbook Air replicas, which is basically the price of a real notebook

The bottom line is that Intel’s average selling prices are doomed due to the recession, and they simply have to go down as Intel makes less money on a $70 Atom then on a $200 Core 2 mobile CPU. Intel wants to limit Atom based netbooks to the €300 price range, while partners want to sell them for as much as they can.
