The Acer Aspire One is about to hit the N American market. This guy’s got a 9" screen, the Intel Atom 1.6Ghz, 30GB SSD drive and is targeted at $399. Or a 120HD and XP.
I’ll flog these puppies the same price as the others, $399 and $30 shipping if you gimme your credit card right now (and wait just like ncix or tigerdirect)when you order to the bozos in town.
Odd thing is they use a distro they call Linpus… like you want to make Linux sound bad or what? Lin - Pus… eewww!
Also: there’s a $100 rebate from Asus on the Eee900 line with the Celeron ( oops! Celeron name so trashed it’s now ‘Intel Mobile’) cpu.
AND AS OF YESTERDAY: The new AsusEee 10" model, 40GB SSD and “20 Gigs of Internet Storage” but the sucker is over $700
EDIT: the bozo comment just slipped out! Every bozo in town call today.
Someone angrily canceled a Eee order today cuz they’re too stupid to read the ‘After Mail-in Rebate’ part in the ncix ad.
Another complaining she got her ‘free’ Bell ExpressVue dish and they’re threatening to charge her $459 as she never activated it. Had to explain people don’t “give computers and satellite dishes and cell phones away free, and it’s the other store that sells tv dishes”
$5, a cappuccino and 3 DuMaurier richer placing bets on call-ins with the CSR. Not ONE knew what cartridge went with their printer. One didn’t even know what brand of printer she had. The CSR even ‘took’ an order for “one Samsung color laser cartridge”
