The Bureau of Customs (BOC) was able to seize 3,915 notebook PCs on December of 2011. Under Section 2503 of the Tariffs and Customs Code of the Philippines, these Asus branded notebook PCs should proceed to Philippine government offices.

Around 2,000 of the confiscated notebook PCs, as stated by Education Secretary Br. Luistro FSC, are for ALS teachers who travel to unvisited places to teach out-of-school youth. Aside from that, some of the notebook PCs will be given to ALS centers wherein students can use the computers for their classes.

The Disaster Risk Reduction Management (DRMM) Coordinators will receive 500 of the 3,915 notebook PCs as well for improved school mapping during disasters

    why did it took 3 years to begin the distribution of these laptops? pati mga battery nito sira na. pilipinas talaga bulok.

      Siguro nag-undergo muna sa so-called “qaulity check” sa kamay ng mga buwayang opisyal ng putanginang gobyerno. Kinuha yung mga Asus Zenbooks tapos puro mga low to mid-end models yung itinira.

    Sana lang those laptops get used for the purposes stated, not as personal devices of tge recipients.

    2011? Yung mga Asus laptop na yan, kasing-tanda na ng isa naming Acer eMachines laptop so kaya baka yung baterya nyan, sira na.

    • Abuzalzal says:

      Ikaw yata ang sira. Ipamimigay ba yan kung sira? Ikaw yata sira, eh. Lololololololololololololololol

    Actually, 4,000 units yan. Yung 85 na pinaka high-end at pinaka-bago, naibulsa na.

    • arsenal says:

      Those black/grey colored boxes are the high-end models. Probably Asus N-series or Zenbook laptops (damn fucking lucky corrupt officials). The ones on the brown boxes are your typical consumer laptops, the Eee series is on the middle, while the red one is the K-series.

    • Abuzalzal says:

      Paano mo nalaman na naibulsa na? Isa ka ba sa nakabulsa nun? Lololololololololololololol

    • muslim na bayot says:

      Abuzalzal alam mo na ang sinabi ko sayo, kalahi kita kaya..

    Looks like the specs of those seized laptops are way overkill for a corrupt gov’t employee’s “everyday tasks”…you know computing how much money they have “earned” while they “work”.
