MSI and ASUS turned their backs on ION

Intel is a better friend

According to our info, two big players in the netbook and nettop industry, Asus and MSI chose to skip Nvidia's ION party. We guess that Intel is just a better friend than Nvidia in these tough times and as we were able to see at Cebit, they already can do nettops that are based on Intel's CPU, but paired up with either ATI or Nvidia GPU.

Both of these companies are not talking about Nvidia's ION, and according to our current info are not even considering it. Including the ION would mean that they took side with Nvidia in this one and Intel might not like it. It also means that they will probably hurt their own sales of Intel's Atom platform nettops and this is something that Asus and MSI will not do.

The Computex show is around the corner and we doubt that there will be any Nvidia ION based from these two companies, but there will be plenty from other partners that want to join the ION bandwagon. We know that more companies will announce their ION's sometime in May, but Asus and MSI shouldn't be on that list.
