Asus ships fewer Eee PC units than expected
The computer has certainly been selling like hot cakes, (does anybody actually buy hot cakes?), especially when you consider that this time last year the low cost ultraportable market didn’t even exist. But Asus says the Intel Atom CPU shortage has affected the company’s ability to meet its goal.
That shortage is expected to end within the next few months though, and Asus sources tell DigiTimes that the company still expects to ship 5 million Eee PC units this year though.
