Tech giants Intel and Asus teamed up to create a challenge to the “One Laptop Per Child” initiative’s XO-1 laptop, releasing the first series of their own sub-laptops back in 2007 -- the Asus Eee PC 700 series. Following on its success (over 300,000 were sold in ’07 alone), the Series 900 hit stores in America in May. We will talk about what this new mini-laptop has to offer in regards to functionality, features, and most importantly, price.
Intel states that the ultimate goal of its Eee PC line of computers (aside from making a boatload of money) is to allow every person in the world a chance to own a PC. Even if they don't have a power outlet in their hut. This is all a part of their "World Ahead" marketing scheme -- I mean marketing plan. If you find yourself wondering what the three E's stand for, wonder no more. It is an abbreviation of the company's marketing slogan:
"Easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play."
The system was officially launched in Hong Kong back in April for around $500. It was released in the United Kingdom on May 1 for $650, and then in the United States on May 12 for $550.
