Taiwanese company Asus has decided to temporarily forget about the German market as you cannot buy a single Eee PC in DACH countries. This market involves about 100 million people that live in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
According to geizhals.net pricelist search engine, this was the top search for this Christmas, and we haven’t seen a single one available.
Americans have been able to buy them for weeks and Asus certainly sold a lot io this continent. To make this even a bigger issue, Americans can buy the same device for $350, while in E.U. we will have to pay about €299, or almost $90 more.
We have just had to learn to live with feeling ripped off as Europeans, but eventually this will have to stop.
The E.U. link is here , while the American link, where they are available, is here.
