Sony fears the Asus Eee PC, They're scared of what the low price, low spec portable can do to the bottom end laptop market. As well as they should be scared, the Asus Eee PC is cheap, low powered and extremely versatile. It started off slow with only the geekiest geeks wanting one but now it seems that quite a few less tech savvy people are getting into the hype. Asus is planning on releasing more models later this year with larger screens but keeping the same overall ultra-portable size. Sony fears that if people realize the growing list of things that can be done with cheap ultra-portable laptops in general that it will interfere with the lower models of some of the major laptop/notebook makers. If they realize that their day-to-day tasks can be done on such a machine than they would be less likely to buy the newest greatest laptop with and be reluctant to buy the top of the line model.
