Asus dominates the market for super small, super cheap Linux / XP based mini-notebook pc. It is believed that they may have sold over 5 million Eee PCs. Now you can grab this PC for free. Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) is running spring 2008 promotion and giving out a free Asus EEE PC for every new account opened with them. Similarly you can signup to T-Mobile's 'Web n Walk' max mobile boradband package for £35 per month ona 24 month contract and get a free USB modem and a free Asus EEE PC ultra mobile PC.

It turns out that people just wanted a regular laptop, but much smaller and cheaper. When Asus came out with its mostly solid state, plain vanilla PC running Linux (and now XP), the masses flocked. And now, Acer, Dell, HP and possibly Sony, as well as a smattering of smaller companies, are rushing their own cheap-and-tiny offerings.

I live in Canada and saw the “free” offer. To get it, you have to open an account with them at around CAD $15/month and keep it open until the end of the year. At this point that’s about $90 in service charges, and I didn’t follow up on what extra charges I’d get by actually using the account.
