[photopress:IT_asus_eeepc_2.jpg,full,alignright]Taiwan computer giant ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS) has recently laid the foundation for a RMB3 billion ($428.6 million) factory in Jianxi Province in the Chinese mainland.
In the preliminary stage the factory in Ji’an city will produce copper wire yarn and computer accessories. It will produce mainboards and assemble notebook computers in the future.
Annual production at the factory is expected to reach RMB10 billion.
ASUS has a global staff of more than 100,000. Revenue for 2007 reached $6.9 billion
The illustration was not chosen for the model — atlthough that helped — but for the new sub-mini Asus which is selling at very low prices and is creating a new market.
The 900 is based around an 8.9in, 1024 x 600 display.
It will contain 1GB of DDR 2 memory and a choice of 12GB or 20GB of solid-state storage, depending on which operating system you opt for. Both capacities are configured as two partitions: one 4GB space and either 8GB or 16GB.
The 20GB model will come with Linux, Asus said, while the 12GB version will be pre-loaded with Windows XP Home Edition.
