A lot of people are now hyping the Asus EEE that became a best seller in this country starting a few months ago. The main contributor to its success is undoubtedly its price, P17~19,000 per unit. However, an examination of its specs will show it to be inferior to the NEO Celeron laptop which went for P20,000 last year. Imagine adding one to three thousand pesos and get a full sized laptop? The only advantage that I see with the EEE is in its size. It’s small enough to fit in my pocket. For students and young professionals, viist the computer shops and ask for the cheapest laptop and see if it’s worthwhile buying instead of the new EEE.
