Asus won't wait for Intel's Atom


According
to Digitimes, Asustek will introduce its second generation Eee PC in the second half of April, at least in Taiwan.

Many punters expected the revamped Eee to use Intel's Atom CPU; however this is not the case. Asus opted to stick with the ULV Celeron instead, obviously in an effort to beat Acer's baby Aspire and MSI's Wind to the market. Atom based notebooks are slated for a June launch, while Asus would get a two-month lead over the competition. However, later versions of the Eee PC will also feature Intel's Atom.

Asus will grab the lead once again, but only for a little while. The question is, will the consumers choose to wait for Atom-powered machines or get themselves a Celeron based Eee? Asus reigned supreme on the low-cost notebook market for more than six months, but this time around the competition is ready. Well, almost ready, to be exact.
