They mightn't know much about Linux but they're pretty good at
applying the IROF (Ireland Rip Off Factor). I just cancelled my order
at Expansys and ordered one from Komplett, who have them in stock.
Komplett is the most expensive online source I have looked at for the
EEE and the delivered price to me incl. VAT is €351.51 - Back From
The Future wants €499. As I don't want whatever level of hand holding
Back From The Future can provide, I'll go with the rather less
expensive option thanks.
P.S. This thread started with a question about the PSU as supplied
with Komplett for this SKU. When I reached the Komplett checkout, I
discovered that it is indeed a U.S. model, and it's shipped with one
of these http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=346324 and one of these
http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=113064 . Not quite as handy as
the slip on prongs supplied with the UK model, but I can live with
it, esp. since I'm getting a U.S. layout KB.
