Asus confirms delay of U2E laptop

But low-power laptop could launch next week

Asus has delayed the release of its low-power U2E laptop so it can launch it along with a few other products, a company representative said today.

The company insisted there was no problem with the laptop, but wants to launch it alongside other products at a, Asus news conference, possibly next week.

The Asus U2E, which weighs 1.25kg, comes wrapped in either black or brown and is built for power-savings with an LED (light emitting diode). It has an 11in screen and a 32GB SSD (solid-state drive) instead of a hard disk drive (HDD).

LED backlights use about 10-15 percent less power than the CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) backlights that are currently used in most laptop PCs. SSDs save power as well, because unlike HDDs, they do not contain any moving parts.
