The Eee PC is based on the ‘easy’ concept

Gee, it’s ‘Eee’

The most valuable thing in Andrew Tsui’s bag, when we recently met in eWorld premises, was a brand-new Eee PC. “Yet to be launched in India,” he said, opening what looked like a shrunken version of a laptop, weighing less than a kg.

Only weeks earlier, the product had hit the shelves in Taiwan, Asus’ home turf. “The first 150 or so units were bought by our rivals to dis-assemble and find out what we have done,” reminisced Tsui, over a leisurely South Indian lunch in Chennai. “At least for the next nine months we don’t expect any competition to our Eee PC.”
