The Asus Eee PC : Now With Windows XP
This ‘easy to use PC’ with Windows OS will primarily be aimed at the education market and will be available via special tender for educational institutions and through the channel.

Managing Director of Asus Australia, Ted Chen said, “The affordability of the Eee PC supports the Federal Government’s education policy with regard to technology. We see the Eee PC as essential to expanding the market within the education sector. ASUS is dedicated to providing schools around Australia the opportunity to be part of the digital future. We believe education is fundamental to a child’s livelihood and ASUS is proud to be part of this important development for children’s futures.”
 

 

“Technology is a fundamental tool to enable social and economic opportunity, but today five billion people around the world still remain without access,” said general manager, Microsoft OEM division, Asia Pacific Region, Wai Choon Butt,  “By introducing the Eee PC with Windows, ASUS is providing Windows-based applications and services to millions of people that can benefit tremendously from an affordable laptop for education.”

School representatives will have the opportunity to experience the Eee PC first-hand as Asus takes the product on a roadshow tour with events to be held across seven locations around Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, and Hobart) starting this month.
 
The Eee PC with Microsoft Windows XP will be available via special tender for educational institutions and through computer resellers from the second week of March 2008.
