Default Asustek to Release Eee PC Notebooks for High-End Markets

The president of Asustek Computer, Jerry Shen, has confirmed at a news-conference in Taipei, Taiwan, that the company plans to launch Eee PC-branded mobile computers for higher-end market segments. The launch of such systems will considerably expand markets that Asus may address with its trendy Eee-branded devices.

As revealed earlier this week, Asustek Computer plans to release Pro Fashion and Ultimate (S-series) families of Asus Eee PC notebooks aiming at $700 - $900 price-points. The systems will feature 10.1 LED backlit screens, 120GB hard disk drives (HDDs) or 32GB solid state drives (SSDs) and will work for 4-5 hours, DigiTimes web-site quotes Mr. Shen as saying.

So basically, they're going to kill off their other laptop lines and use EEE PC for all their products just to make use of the popular name... confusing?

Sounds like it. I'm just hoping their high-end laptops have a bit more style than the Eee. They don't have to be Voodoo Envy slick, but it'd be nice if they came close.
