Sony leery of the Asus Eee PC?

As a computer, the Eee PC from Asus is intended to be the opposite of intimidating -- it's made for children after all. But its potential as a market force is apparently giving chills to its larger industry peers.

At Sony's annual Open House event in Las Vegas, the senior vice president of Sony's IT product division said the tiny $299 notebook could potentially shift the entire notebook industry.

"If (the Eee PC from) Asus starts to do well, we are all in trouble. That's just a race to the bottom," said Mike Abary.
