Despite initial promises of fixing the typos in their specifications, Amazon.com, Best Buy, and Eee PC maker ASUS now refuse to respond to any form of inquiry in regards to the Eee PC’s specification malfunction.
ASUS original spoke on behalf of Best Buy, claiming that they were working with the company to have the specifications fixed, removing any reference of processor speed from the offending product page. Now, when asked for comment, all three refuse to provide any update.
Could it be because the companies are afraid of having to refund Eee PC owners that go ballistic when they learn their machines are one-third slower than advertised? That’s not for me to say… I will point out though that Best Buy just began promoting the Eee PC on their front page.
