Even though Asus Eee PCs are positioned as easy-to-use everyday devices, the actual product lineup is from being easily understandable for a typical end-user now that there are about ten Eee systems in the lineup. But believe it or not, based on leaked information Asustek Computer, the manufacturer plans to expand the Eee family to twenty three units.

Apparently, there are three “families” of Eee PC planned: “Slim”, “PRO Fashion” and “Smart Casual”, based on an image that resembles a slide from Asustek’s roadmap published by Engadget web-site. Each of the families are targeted at different types of end-users and have different features, however, their actual pricing does not seem to depend specifically on their target groups.

Actual specifications of the forthcoming Asus Eee PCs were not unveiled, however, it is highly likely that the systems will still be equipped with Intel Atom or Intel Celeron M microprocessors as well as solid state drives or, in rare cases, hard disk drives.

With 23 different Asus Eee PCs models on the market, customers seeking for ease-of-use will find it hard to pick up the right model. On the other hand, Asustek Computer will get a chance to more efficiently compete against its rivals due to wider product lineup.

Asustek Computer did not comment on the news-story.
