Acer And Asus Stop Releasing New Netbook Models For 2009

While Asus and Acer have released quite a number of new netbook models in 1st half of 2009, Digitimes reported that both companies will not be releasing anymore new netbook model in the 2nd half of the year. The reason is that they want to wait until 2010 when Windows 7 and Intel’s new Pine Trail-M Atom chips are available.

In the meantime, both companies will be focusing on getting rid of current netbook stock and releasing laptops that are larger and higher priced, but still relatively thin and light. These laptops will be using Intel’s CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors instead of Atom CPUs.
