Asus eee 901 unboxed, hooker-style

Can Google Trends Predict The Election?

Laptop has some first shots of the Asus eee 901. Instead of a lab, the unboxed the sucker on a bed and next to a breakfast tray, suggesting that Laptop is more attracted to their review products than we initially realized. I do know that Laptop publisher Ed Brown successfully mounted and procreated with an IBM ThinkPad back in 2002, but to see it happen again is perverse.

How did they get it? They trolled Taipei’s electronics district.

The district’s streets should be paved in silicon with the amount of laptops and desktops on sale. Shop after shop has the latest laptops on display along with a ton of software and other computer parts. Struggling with the fact that we didn’t speak Chinese, we wrote down “ASUS Eee PC 901″ on a piece of paper and went around showing it to as many vendors as we could find.

Reminds me of the time I hit the Beijing red-light district with “Jackie Chan, only a girl” written in Korean. My right leg still hurts when it’s about to rain.
