Asus Eee PC Price in the Philippines

Asus Eee PC 701

The Asus Eee PC is probably the hottest non–Apple tech gadget today, and for good reason. Offering the mobility of ultraportable notebooks/laptops at the price of an advanced PDA or smartphone (hint: iPhone?), geeks and mobile warriors are quick to appreciate the goodness this device provides.

So how much will it (Asus Eee PC 701) retail in the Philippines? 17,999 pesos. Insiders have leaked this price though it is still unconfirmed until we see it in the stores. At the said price, it is actually cheaper than the announced price of USD $399, if converted using 44 pesos to a dollar. It’s cheaper to get the Asus Eee PC here in the Philippines!

But wait, knowing how unscrupulous some local retailers are, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see it selling for more than twenty thousand pesos, especially considering the holiday buying rush. Needless to say, I want one. Want it enough that I’m reconsidering if I really want one of those new MacBooks now.

    i have this PC. bought it in SM North Edsa Cyberzone. 17,000. :-) if you’re good, maybe you can even haggle.

    Almost all major computer shops in Manila now carry the Eee, you should have no trouble finding them. Stock availability is a different matter though.

    We got ours from PC Live and Villman in Megamall. Cash prices reportedly go as low as 16,000 but 12 months 0-interest through a credit card puts it at 19,800 or exactly 1,650 pesos a month. =)

    @Darwin: It uses a ULV Celeron running at 900 Mhz. Not really fast, but good enough for most needs.

    @Joycelyne: Major PC shops are selling them, just visit your favorite mall. :)

    @Rhamawia: If you have a Villman branch there in Mindanao, I’m sure you can get it from them.

    @insep and @jun tanhueco: I don’t think local distributors are bringing in the 8G considering the shortage of that model globally.
