Japanese tiny PC fans offered 50p Eee
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.
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...
...I'll take her.
PC World are offering up to £450 off ANY (their caps) laptop (and they at least occasionally stock the Eee PC, rebadged MSI Wind etc as we know) when you sign up to inevitably overpriced mobile broadband.
