For me personally, all the features that they offer on this account will actually save me money in the long run. I was thinking for a long time that I needed to evaluate my service plan and the Eee PC was what got me going.
I did inquired as to when I might expect my Eee PC as they say Please allow 10 – 12 weeks for delivery of your FREE Eee PC from the date you complete the above criteria. The client rep said that they wait till October 31st and see who still qualifies, send out a letter and then that's when the 10 to 12 weeks start.
So I'm expecting my free Eee PC from the Royal Bank sometime after Christmas but before my birthday. Hopefully sooner?
Be aware that this is the low end model and that you can't upgrade the RAM. So forget running XP on it.
