ASUS recently disclosed their inventory data a couple of days back and said that the ASUS is unlikely to profitable in quarter 1, 2009. Infact, he said that the company is doing everything to clear the inventory. But, what caught our eye was the fact that ASUS EEE PCs are not selling at the rate the company wanted it to.
With the stiff competition from ACER, HP, Samsung and DELL, such a result was quite expected. On the other hand, netbooks are also getting a lot pricier than before, which would mean less buyers. Not everyone is going to spend $550 on a netbook like ASUS S101.
