Looks like Asus changed its mind on the touchscreen issue. The company stated back in January that the Eee PC was not to have such a feature, due to weak demand.
The price for the new machines will be set around $500. At the same time, Lin added, the company will begin shipping its E-DT, priced at $199.
The 8.9-inch Eee PC will feature a minimum of 1GB of RAM and a SSD (solid state drive) ranging from 8GB to 12GB, industry sources claim.
