boylinux I am incredibly saddened (2987 comments)

I cannot believe that someone could target children like that. My two daughters are the same age as the dead and I will have to hug and hold them for a long while tonight. My heart goes out to those parents.

Eee Pc Launched finally.

boylinux boylinux writes  |  more than 5 years ago

boylinux (775361) writes "Taiwan's Asustek (2357.TW: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Tuesday it will sell its new low-cost laptop PCs to consumers for as little as T$7,999 ($245) apiece, as it takes aim at more casual users in developed markets. The new line of notebooks, called Eee PCs, will retail from T$7,999 to T$13,888, with Asustek targeting women and children for consumer sales, President Jonathan Tsang said at an event to launch the new line.

Finally released. I can't wait to get my hands on one."
