MSI has announced that it is currently working on a sub-notebook to compete with rival Asustek's Eee PC.
The ultra-low cost laptop is being designed around Intel's Diamondville processor, and is expected to closely emulate the Eee PC.
Intel is expected to officially unveil the Diamondville at its Developer Forum in Shanghai this April.
Speaking about the device, an MSI executive speaking under strict anonymity told PC World: "When Diamondville is ready, our project will be ready."
He also indicated that the firm plans to launch its sub-notebook sometime in July or August, but declined to give any further details.
