ASUS enters budget realm

Frequently associated with high-performance systems, ASUS is set to venture into the realm of budget laptops, says the Taipei Times. Having spoken with an anonymous source within ASUS, the publication claims that the first such computers will ship in the second half of the year, and be based on Intel's OLPC-like Classmate platform.

A report replied to by the source suggests elevated prices, ranging from $199 to $549; this should come with increased performance however, such as flash drives as large as 40GB. LCD sizes are expected to remain at seven inches.
