Perhaps they read my rant about the over-priced Asus Eee PC 900 and so First Tier Branding Solutions Inc. has invited me to the ASUS Eee PC 900 Press Launch.
It will happen this coming May 12, 2008 at the Quezon A Ballroom, Makati Shangri-la. Most of us already know who ASUS is and what the Asus Eee PC is. The original 7-inch version has sparked a social phenomenon that has shaken the world of ultra-potable laptops.
The newer EeePC 900 or the so-called “9-inch” model has been made available here in the Philippines but has been met with mixed reactions especially because of it eyebrow-raising price tag. Sure it comes with a bigger screen, more storage capacity and it now natively runs Windows XP, but then again one cannot help the feeling that at Php33K, it is something of an overkill.
I suppose attending the press launch will put my apprehensions to the test, but what I’m really after is the chance to meet other bloggers and techies who will attend the event.
So who else is going?
