Asustek to start volume shipments of Eee PCs in September

Asustek Computer will begin shipping its ultra low-cost notebook, the Eee PC, simultaneously to clients in the US, Europe, China as well as Taiwan, in mid-September, with the first-round shipments targeting 20,000 units, according to sources at the company.

In addition to securing orders from the mentioned countries, Asustek has also landed orders for its Eee PCs from a number of education organizations, insurance companies and emerging markets, the sources noted.However, the company is concerned that the persistent tight supply of a number of key components might affect production in the second half of the year, contended the sources.
The Eee PCs will be available at US$199, US$239, US$349 and US$369 depending on specifications, with the model priced at US$349 targeting the mainstream, said the sources, noting that the first-round shipments will be mostly of the mainstream model.

Since the specifications of Eee PCs are similar to a mini notebook, international market research firms are reportedly considering classifying shipments of Eee PCs as notebooks, which could boost Asustek's market share as well as its ranking in the global notebook market, according to market sources.

I find it hard to believe that the ancient Danger Den TDX is better than the Storm and Fuzion....

I find it hard to believe that the temp difference between one of the test setups was close to 42.

Anyone got linkage to the full testing?? Those results go against the results of more or less every tester worldwide who's done any comparative work of current vs older gen blocks...

I'm afraid that's a set of test results I'd rather summarily ignore until full details of the testing are revealed, as the results look VERY fishy.

EDIT: In fact, the results look like all testing was done on an exposed die old 32bit processor (Barton generation possibly, which I know HWLuxx were using as their testrig a while ago)... then the results fall kind of into shape... altho the position of the TDX is still way off in relation to everything else...

I know this is a rather large thread revival, but did it ever get reviewed?

Doubt it but there has been random reviews using loads that it has featured in and its nothing special. But then again we have v2 and GTZ now.

Kelvin and centigrade are equal in temperature difference. However if you say it cooled to 0*C then it cools to 273K. It won't cool to less than 273K because it relies on ambient temperatures so 30K is way off. As someone pointed out to do that you would need liquid helium or perhaps liquid hydrogen.
