If eeepc.net has it right, Asus Philippines will not be releasing the much-anticipated (from my point of view) EeePC 901 here. I guess I’ll have to either import one or look for grey-market sellers. The price difference between the 901 and the 900 is reportedly small, which makes the 901 definitely a better buy because of the longer battery life.
Anyway, this August, Dell will be launching their E series, with an attractive entry price point of $299. Maybe that’s even a better buy than the Acer Aspire one (currently selling locally here in the Philippines for PhP 18,800 or approximately $417).
