I was of the understanding that the Asus EeePC was not avilable for general retail but this is clearly not the case judging by this Sydney Morning Herald article.
The thing that strikes a chord with me is that the computers are not the latest and greatest gaming machines and still they are popular. Does this mean that a lot of us now realise that we do not need the latest and greatest OS and other features that the manufacturers are trying to tell us that we do?
It was also interesting to read that “We’ve had a lot of schools coming in making multiple purchases.” I thought that schools did not have to use the retail channels in Australia? Interesting article indeed.
