On Unrealised Potential.

09 June 200802:49PMrants

Hey! This post is really old. You should take it with a grain of salt.

I retract my retraction about the Asus Eee PC.

Turns out Asus really are assholes. "It's better with Windows". What a sell- out! Mind you, they are adopting SplashTop on all their motherboards, but even so... Look at the new Eee 1000! It's become just another normal laptop running Windows. Not that I ahve a proplem with Windows in and of itself. It's just sad to see a really awesome little device go down the plughole and become 'just another laptop'

Although I am in no rush to give my money to the unfortunate people at Asus, I am in the fortunate position of being able to buy a first-gen Eee off someone I know... you know who you are, mister! Which means I can enjoy the awesomely goodness of the first-gen Eee without having to support Asus' poor descisions.

Anyway, that's all. I feel sorry for Asus, I really do. They had something special with the Eee 700, as the sales figures show, but then they got greedy... It had such potential! Ah well. Such is life.
