Asus plans to sell 5 million Eee PCs next year

Raises its forecast


A few days ago we wrote about Eee PC sales in the U.S. and the fact that it has attracted a lot of attention from holiday shoppers, here. The company said that it plans to sell anywhere from 3 to 5 million units next year, but today it has upped the ante, saying that it will sell 5 million.

According to Reuters, a senior company executive has confirmed the optimistic 5 million figure. Vice President Kevin Lin said that the company previously had expected to sell 3 million, but that it has raised its forecast to 5 million. If we were to play the guessing game, we could say that consumer interest for a low priced and light notebook is much higher than expected.

Currently, Asus sells around 20,000 units per month, but if the company has set its sights at the 5 million mark, it will have to increase production twenty fold, to more than 400,000 units per month.

Asus wants to become the fifth largest notebook maker in the world by 2010. If these numbers are anything to go by, it will get there sooner rather than later.
