For a couple of months now that the Asus EeePC has been available in the local market, I haven’t got the chance to get myself one. Either there’s no available stock or the remaining lone unit is priced way more than the SRP. My only luck was with Asus Philippines lending me a review unit.
Three visits to Mall of Asia, two at Park Square/Glorietta and another two visit at Virramall, Greenhills in the last 2 months and still nothing. The only store that had a unit left was selling it in excess of Php21,000 and I don’t want to bow down to that amount.
So while I await the stores to restock themselves with brand new unit, we’ll put this one on the stress test and see how it compares to the regular laptop.
We’ll be looking at relative size, actual battery life and performance benchmarks, among others.
Since the selling point of the Asus Eee PC is its affordability and very small form factor, we’ll put it on road test and see if it can take a beating. Watch out for this in a week or so.
