ASUS has announced a special edition Eee PC by parnering with the Austrailian National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
The Pink Eee PC S101H supports the Pink Ribbon cause by donating a portion of each special edition Eee PC sold to the NBCF. The new netbook features 170GB of hybrid storage, b/g/n wifi, Bluetooth, and Windows XP Home.
The Pink Eee PC S101H is available in Austrailia through selected Meyer Stores and will set you back AU$1,099. Unfortunately ASUS has not stated how much of each purchase will go to the NBCF.
The full press release can be found here.
Sue Murray, CEO of the NBCF, encouraged the public to go pink with their next PC purchase. "We are thrilled that ASUS is continuing its support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Funds raised through sales of the Pink Eee PC S101H will go towards the prevention, detection and treatment of this disease, which currently claims the lives of more than 2,800 Australians each year."
Ted Chen, Managing Director of ASUS Australia and New Zealand, said, "ASUS is happy to be supporting the NBCF and its commitment to finding a cure for breast cancer. We are proud to partner with the NBCF once again and have the utmost respect for the organisation - ASUS will do what it can to assist this worthy cause."
