Asus has some bigger Eee PCs and some smaller, more affordable ultraportable notebooks up its sleeve. The folks at DigiTimes got the latest word on Asus' laptop plans straight from company CEO Jerry Shen himself—and apparently, the line between netbooks and notebooks will blur even within Asus' own product range.
First, the company is getting an Eee PC with an 11.6" display ready for a launch "later this month." Shen still expects 10" Eee PCs to make up half of total shipments this year, but he nevertheless sees the 11.6" systems becoming popular enough to account for 30% of all shipped units. No word yet on that system's display resolution, though.
On the ultraportable front, DigiTimes writes that Asus plans three ultra-thin notebooks based on Intel's CULV Core 2 processors later in the year. Two of them will come out in July: a 15.6" "mid-range to high-end" model priced at €799-999, and a 13.3" derivative with a €599-699 price tag. (If today's Eee PCs are any indication, you can figure out U.S. prices by just swapping out the currency symbol.) A 14" Asus CULV system should also be out some time this year.
