The eeePC has been a big hit – no, I’m not working for ASUStek but if I was, the very first thing I would in 2008 is figure out a way to launch this machine across Africa. Seriously, everyone who saw it wanted to know what it was, how much it cost and where and when they could buy it. They usually guessed far higher prices in their estimation and when I told them it was only USD 400 they wanted to know how to get one for themselves. John here is a Malawian working to save up to go and study to be an accountant. He is earning about USD 4 a day. He thinks the interface should be easy to navigate if he had some time to play with it.
