September 10, 2008 2:40am CST
When i see the latest notebook that ASUS launched i was amazed and go to the store to purchase one unit.While at the store (one mall) waiting for the process of my notebook unit that i buy my friend who is a professional computer technician texted me and to my surprise he told me that the latest notebook that ASUS launched is a "disposable one",that unit costs 17,000 and more in pesos but in dollars it is $350 per unit,after what my friend told me i cancel as soon as possible the unit that i purchase.How about you would you do the same what i do (cancel the order just because it is a disposable one?)its not worth it because its expensive and the unit is disposable.Share your ideas guys.Thanks.

just recently i saw that asus EeePC notebook you have mentioned.. it has 900mhz processor, 1gb ram, 8.9" screen, wifi, 1.3mp cam, 30 gb hdd, win xp os.. and it costs around usd413 here.. but if you go to their website at www.asus.com they have a newer model with only 7" screen and only 4gb flash drive & 512mb ram.. there are some warranty included.. i find the unit interesting.. usually before i purchase something like a cell phone or a laptop, i'll try to see some user forums to see what are the problems in the units.. me i'll just wait for the price to settle down and see the comments from those who experienced the units first hand.. maybe i'll decide to buy one.. hehehhe

but have you heard that it is disposable?for me im going to think if it will be a great help for me to buy one,coz one of my friend which is a professional computer technician told me that Asus Eepc is a disposable one.Are you sure that you like to purchase one if you'll find out that it is a disposabe one?

i think i can consider it to be disposable when it is not repairable.. i have read the warranty terms and it looks like it can be repaired at some point.. also i have mentioned to check first the forums and se the comments from people who has experience with it.. they are the best judge because they actually used the unit.. sometimes i do put some lifetime for some of my gadgets.. lets say if this one lived up to 3 years, then i am already satisfied with its use.. but still i can check if the repair cost is cost-effective rather than have a replacement..
