Asustek (you know them as “Asus,” makers of the Eee sub-notebook) have announced the next products in the Eee family. It seems selling capable, good quality computers for low prices is an exciting and profitable business model.
• The E-DT, a desktop PC that will sell for between $200 and $300. (Snore.)
• The E-Monitor, an all-in-one computer with an integrated 19- to 21-inch LCD panel, a la the iMac or XPS One. Oh, and it’ll include a TV tuner, too. All for $500.
• The E-TV, a 42-inch LCD TV with a built in PC that Asus estimates will cost no more than $200 over a similar LCD TV.
The E-Monitor in particular sounds great. Why buy a monitor for $250 when you can get a whole computer for twice as much? (Okay, that’s probably not the most convincing way to phrase it.)
