Default ASUS Eee To Cost Near $360USD

From our front-page news:
According to DigiTimes, the ASUS Eee is going to cost more than we originally anticipated, at around $360USD. Part of this is due to the fact that the 7" LCD panels cost more than expected. The other part is the fact that the US was never meant to see the $199 version of the Eee to begin with, so the extra cash is used for "higher-end" specs. Still, even at $360USD, the Eee has a great chance in the marketplace.

As demand for small- to medium-size LCD panels was running tight during the first half of 2007, prices for 7-inch panels increased to US$30 during the second quarter, compared to less than US$20 at the beginning of this year, noted the sources. The quotes are far more expensive that those expected by Asustek.

Thats still not a bad price but well over what I think we all were anticipating. For that price though, I want the XP version with the 8GB storage dammit!
