Intel to Produce Chip for Low-Cost Computer Market

Feb. 22, 2008
Chip will be for computers with $250 price tag

Confirming earlier reports, Intel Corp. plans to produce a chip for the low-cost computer market, a spokesman for the group said Feb. 22. The world's leading chip maker likely will make the official announcement in early March, the spokesman said.

Intel already has a low-cost laptop, Classmate, targeting emerging economies worldwide, but it is powered by a chip at the low end of the company's product line.

The new chip, designed for both laptops and desktops, will be aimed at the entire low-cost market -- generally computers sold for $250 or less -- which includes notably the Eee PC, sold by ASUStek Computer Inc.
