Asus Eee PC Exceeds Sales Target

Asus’ Linux-based Eee PC has exceeded its 2007 sales goal by more than 50,000 units, writes Linux Loop.

“Over 350,000 Eee PCs have been sold so far since the release in mid October, according to Tech Digest. This is already 50,000 over the original goal of 300,000 units sold by the end of 2007… the success of the Eee PC shows other hardware manufacturers that there is a market for computers with Linux on them that is worth getting into.”

How does this compare with Dell’s half-hearted efforts to sell Ubuntu Linux machines? While Dell’s Ubuntu sales are good, the Eee blows them away:

“To put the 350,000 number in perspective, Dell is thought to have sold 40,000 Ubuntu PCs over a period of about 5 months, according to The Register. This is about 8,000 per month compared to about 175,000 Eee PCs per month.”
