Bad Review

My last computer had an ASUS motherboard and so does my present one. Seeing this behavior isn't comforting:

ASUS officially admitted that it provided better batteries to reviewers of its popular Eee PC 900 than those it shipped to actual customers. According to reports flowing in from Hong Kong, customers who purchased the new UMPCs on launch day complained that ASUS mislead consumers and reviewers. The batteries that were given to reviewers were 5800mAh batteries while consumers were given 4800mAh.



Aw, their motherboards are great. So maybe their business practices can be a bit slimy at times, but I've yet to have a problem with the actual hardware.

By the way, I just picked up an EEPC from CanadaComputers last week. Took about a week for them to deliver it. It's a great little toy, I've been playing with it non-stop since I got it. Right now I'm in the process of trying to set up XP and linux on it to dual-boot :)


I take it you haven't seen the lengths that video card makers used to go to in order to win benchmarks. This is child's play by comparison!
