Oh by the way, these will be priced from 499€ to 549€ in Europe [source
]. That's not even close
to 449$ and well withing the range of a Sandy Bridge laptop of the same size.
Asus, i want to like you, but get your pricing right. Not too many people will pay 400€ for a 11" Zacate laptop or 500€ for a 13" one. Though i happily paid Lenovo 300€ for a 11" one a year ago
