Taiwanese computer parts maker Asus obviously didn't get the memo. Didn't Asus know notebook computers need hard drives? Or that they're supposed to run Windows -- and the pre-loaded software must bloat the boot-up process to the length of a long weekend? Don't they know you don't just go selling laptops for less than $750 -- let alone $400 -- unless the hardware has been aged like whisky? Asustek Computers went ahead and broke the rules with the Eee PC. We should all be thankful.

Daniel: Very interesting how you made the iPhone analogy based on the price-point and a pretty similar target market. But I'm curious as to why Dell or HP was beat to the punch on this by Asus. I'm sure Dell will be right along on this in a matter of weeks, if they're not already.
