ASUS planning Eee PC and notebook price hikes after March 1st

ASUS are reportedly planning to increase prices on their notebooks and Eee PC netbook ranges, effective from March 1st, which will see costs rising by up to 20-percent.  Full details of the move, which is apparently in response to both the current financial climate and the rising price of both computing components and manufacturing costs, have not been revealed, but in a worst-case scenario could see the cost of the latest Eee PC 1000HE rise from $399 to $479.

ASUS notebooks & Eee PCs headed to Walmart?

ASUS are eyeing up US retailer Wal-Mart as the next potential point of sale for their notebooks, according to the latest rumors coming out of Taiwan, as the company explores ways in which it can break the 1m US sales barrier.  That means buyers will soon be able to find ASUS notebooks and netbooks, most likely at the budget end of the spectrum, on the shelves, as ASUS attempts to push past Acer's netbook lead.

In 2008, ASUS sold 650,000 notebooks - including Eee PC netbook models - in the US.  That's compared to Acer's 16-percent market share, with shipments in Q4 2008 alone amounting to between 1.4 and 1.5 million notebooks and netbooks.

ASUS ZX-series 12-inch notebook rumored: grown-up Eee PC S101

ASUS might be expecting 22-percent of their 2009 sales to come from netbooks, but that doesn't mean the company has forgotten about its mainstream notebook line.  In fact, they still expect to ship more than twice that amount of notebook computers, 47-percent of total shipments, and it'll be made up of slick new machines like the rumored 12-inch ZX-series.  Believed to fit in above the 10.2-inch ASUS Eee PC S101, the ZX-series will have comparable industrial design and super-skinny chassis, with a 16:10 aspect display and "similar functionality".

Does Apple drive the tablet market, or ASUS?

Does Apple drive the tablet market, or ASUS?

This afternoon the folks at the IDC released quarterly worldwide shipment numbers for tablets, suggesting as they did so that a slump in the market this quarter may be due to Apple's lack of a new iPad. And we got to thinking: it's easy to relate the growth of the tablet industry over the past several years to the iPad - but what can we see if we pinpoint the releases of individual tablets from each of the other top two tablet-making companies to their quarters? Is it the iPad that's driving this growth, or the release of excellent tablet packages by non-Apple companies?

ASUS Transformer Prime GPS freebie small-print prompts owner ire

ASUS may have managed to turn aftersales gold into PR misery, using spec sheet small print to explain why many Eee Pad Transformer Prime owners won't get a free GPS-fixing dongle. The company was praised earlier this week for agreeing to send Transformer Prime owners an add-on to address shoddy positioning performance; now, though, ASUS not all buyers will actually be eligible, since marketing materials in some places never actually mentioned GPS location functionality.
