ASUS CULV notebooks due

ASUS is planning on releasing two new ultra-thin notebooks powered by Intel's CULV chips, including the 45nm Celeron 743 and Core 2 Solo SU2300 early in September, Digitimes said on Monday, citing unnamed sources in the industry. The report goes on to say initial shipments of the portables will begin on September 7th and go to Taiwan, China and Europe at first. US details weren't mentioned, though some sort of American launch is unofficially expected.

ASUS may go on to add more CULV models before the year is out, as company president Jerry Shen estimates that between 10 and 20 percent of all of its notebook sales in the third quarter of the year will be CULV notebooks. Competitors such as MSI and Acer will join the market soon thereafter, the sources said, though a date hasn't been revealed.
