What is their excuse?

This has been identified as a rebranding of an existing product - does it really take so much effort to make a stick-on badge? Or is it because they've woken up to the fact that the Eee PC is now on to its third generation and the laptot market's hotting up in general, so the only selling point to their offering is that it's cheap, really cheap? Odds on that the released product will differ quite substantially from that pictured to date. Odds on also for voluntary money back on the deposits, when it's realised that a better screen, more flash etc won't fit under a ton.

Disappointing "Friend"

Dear me, Elonex. She's really not a patch on the eee girl. I mean, she's not even on a beach!

As a side note, that machine looks seriously top heavy...

Nice little earner

Like David says, what's their excuse? They have lots of money to play with (all of our £10 reservations) and haven't yet delivered the goods. From the initial fees they will have earned a pretty penny from interest. Still, from what they said in their email yesterday we should be receiving more information this month.

Tipping

As nice as the girlie is, if she takes her hand off the machine, its going to tip over backwards isn't it?

Beard

It looks like she's got an amish style beard (left cheek).

And copy all the top heavy comments. That issue really needs laying to rest before anyone sane would consider buying one.

Also, what's with the lack of imagination with product naming these days?
