Eugenia Loli-Queru trolled...

I don't mean to be negative. I really don't. I love these cute little machines. That's why I asked one for a review.


Horse-Apples! You know exactly what you're doing and calling this trolling is the nicest thing I could say about this laughable "article" of yours. If you really wanted to be positive or to ratify your love of these Netbooks you would have requested an EeePC 901 model instead of the 7xx and 900 models which are known to be broken when it comes to power management and suspending.

I'd have bought this tripe of an excuse if this review had been maybe five months ago or earlier--but to try to pull this off as a real review when its one of the oldest revisions is a joke... Shall we expect your upcoming review on Windows 3.11 next week? How about an expose on the follies of Apple entering the Mp3 player business?

Your little conspiracy theory is dead WRONG.

I did NOT know of the battery problem when I requested this model. I requested this model because it was cheaper of the 901 model that cost $550 at Geeks. Geeks CAN NOT send me products that are generally over $300. So I had no other option but to get EITHER this 4G model, OR the even worse one, the 2G one. Thankfully, they sent me the 4G one. I went to review this model with the BEST of the intentions! I WANTED a netbook anyway! I really wanted this to work!

Also, I can't request for review whatever the hell I want. So stop thinking that I do things on purpose. Why the hell would I want that???? Your comment makes no sense. Please stop ASSUMING things without knowing the whole story.

>but to try to pull this off as a real review when its one of the oldest revisions is a joke

You forget one important bit. Geeks.com's business IS about older models. They don't have new models in their store, they are mostly carrying older stuff. And adding to that, I can only request products that generally cost no more than $250 to $300. So that's what I do.

Besides, this is no excuse for Asus for releasing such a shitty product -- and I am talking about the battery of course.
