Asus predicts that Windows based Eec PC will outsell Linux Version
Asus issued a statement predicting that its soon to be released Windows XP powered Eee PC will break the sales record of its Linux counterpart. Asus plans to release two XP versions of the Eee PC with varying price tag.
The Eee PC surf with 4GB of flash storage and 512 MB RAM is priced at $408 while the other one is the Eee PC 4G XP with 4GB SD card that comes with a built-in 3-megapixel camera which is priced at $473.
While the Linux powered Eee PC sells for only $261, I don’t think Windows users would mind shelling out additional money to finally get their hands on the Eee PC with the Windows OS. The Eee PC is still a desktop machine, and what is a desktop without Windows OS?
