nice to hear it
A preorder without price. What if, it’s priced too high, or can’t afford it. While there’s the option of not claiming the item, a preorder is a valid contract, and while it’s unlikely Asus Philippines will sue, it still doesn’t feels right.
At the very least, they should provide a price range.
You still have the option to buy it or not. There is no binding clause in the pre-oder form. You may choose to void it after the validity period.
