Very tough, apparently.
It seems that two team of explorers will be taking the ASUS Eee to extreme lengths just to prove it’s durability. One team took an Eee 900 on a 70-day excursion to the Canadian Arctic while another will be taking an Eee 701 4G to the Himalayas.
According to Stanley Wu of ASUS India, “This is one of the best opportunities for us to demonstrate our technology in the Indian market. ASUS P750 and Eee PC 4G will be put to test by one of the country’s best motor racing team in the world’s most demanding motor racing feat. We wish Team Millennium the very best at the Raid de Himalaya motor rally.”
And Australian explorer Chris Bray said, “Of all the equipment we brought with us on this expedition, it was our ASUS Eee PCs that blew me away the most, in terms of just how well suited they were to our needs and their impressive ability to survive the rigors of harsh expedition life. We’d be in the tent at night, wiping condensation off the screen with our sleeve, rubbing the touch-pad mouse clean from all the mud and chocolate and other grime, shaking the keyboard free of bits of tundra and other rubbish, and accidently bumping, dropping or leaning on them…and they never even flinched! Both Eee PCs soldiered on like true heroes right to the end.”
That’s just how awesome the ASUS Eee is.
