The wildly popular entry-level Eee PC will sell around ten million units next year – doubling its current demand – thanks largely to sales from Europe and Asia, according to vendor Asus.
Meanwhile, according to CEO of Asus Jerry Shen, the low-cost laptop market in general is set for a boom, shifting 20 to 30 million units next year.
However Shen denied that this success would impact sales on higher prices laptops to any great degree.
“Maybe a very little bit, but not much. They are different products," he said.
Elsewhere, the firm announced it will launch the iMac rivalling Eee monitor in September.
