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.
