ASUS has announced an increase in prices of up to 20 per cent on all existing and upcoming notebooks and Eee Family products, effective March 1, 2009.
The current financial climate and an increase in the cost of computer parts and manufacturing operations were cited as reasons behind the price hikes.
The company said it is also restructuring its channel strategy, but offered no further comment.
According to December findings by research firm, DisplaySearch, the global netbook market increased by 160 per cent from the second to third quarter of 2008. Acer enjoyed the top global spot in netbook sales, taking 38.3 per cent of the market to Asus' 30 per cent.
