We had a German couple stay with us for a few days and he had bought an Asus eepc in Germany for his travels to store photos and keep in touch with family and friends ( facebook, email, etc. ) and having read reviews of the earlier versions of these pocketable machines I was left a little underwhelemed by them considering their price.
it was with some surprise that I saw how very well his machine performed so I did a search for it in consideration of buying one as a travel computer.
Guess what, there is no mention of his model on the Australian Asus site and only a couple of people selling them through ( what I presume to be ) parallel imports.
It is truly sad when I can buy one direct from ( site sponsor ) B&H or a few European websites but can't buy one from a legit Aussie dealer because the presumably need to dump all the old stock on us here before they release the new version that is readily available overseas.
