ASUS My Eee PC Fair
Since its introduction in the market, Asus EEE PC has gained following. The name Eee derives from "the three Es," an abbreviation of Asus advertising for the device: "Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to play". Yesterday, Asus opened SM North EDSA Annex’s Techno Lounge for the EEE PC users and enthusiasts for the ASUS My Eee PC Fair.
Originally designed to appeal to children and older users, it has attracted everyone looking for a lightweight budget PC that weighs next to nothing and connects to the Internet easily. The Eee Pc is remarkably versatile machine for the price.
Asus has set a new class of device with the EEE PC. It has marked itself as a brand, product and marketing leader for mobile internet devices or what is now known as net books. It has set the trend for mobile devices that other brands later followed. EEE PC has received recognition and awarded locally and internationally by respected technology publications and organizations.

The fair showcases the different Asus EEE PCs introduced to the market. It is also to give tribute for the fervent support to EEE PCs.
The Eee PC owners and guests are up for exciting games and activities. Different booths are set around the area by Asus in partnership with Globe Tattoo, Logitech, Bo’s Coffee and Star Cruise to visit. People can also enjoy EEE PC balloons and take loads of pictures with your EEE PCs and friends at the photo booth area.
