In late August, we heard rumors that Asustek planned to introduce its low-priced Eee PC laptops some time this month. However, DigiTimes now reports that the Taiwanese company has opted to postpone shipments of the machines until the end of October.
According to DigiTimes, the delay is due to feedback Asustek received regarding its prototype Eee PCs. The site doesn't mention what kind of feedback Asustek got, but it says the company decided to pre-install more Linux-based software on the systems as a result. Asustek, too, claims the addition of extra software is "the major reason" it is pushing back the Eee PC launch. The company adds that the additional software won't affect Eee PC pricing, which is expected to start at $259.
