Japanese tiny PC fans offered 50p Eee

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Here's a way to get an Asus Eee PC for less than 50p - though flying to Japan to pick it up will set you back rather more than that.

Japanese gadget retailer Kojima is offering the original Eee PC 4G - the one with the 7in screen and 4GB solid-state drive; you know, the one that was actually cheap - for just ¥100. It even comes with a USB 3G modem.

The catch: you have to agree to spend ¥2900-6880 ($27-64/£14-33/€17-41) a month for airtime.

Asus' old Eee girl

Eee PC and friend: turning Japanese

Still, it beats the 78 quid Carphone Warehouse's French operation is charging for a Small, Cheap Computer likewise bundled with a USB modem. And we reckon the Eee 4G has the better spec of the two machines: its 630MHz Celeron M actually packing a better punch than the Airis Kira 740's 1GHz C7-M.

And it gives us an opportunity to print that picture again...
