It is not intended to serve, nor is it built to cater for the needs in the
West. This should answers Larry's questions and nag, too. The question is
_not_ "will you ever buy it yourself?". We are not the targeted niche.
As for myself, I wouldn't buy it either (not even for a hundred bucks). Yet,
it is highly valuable in an environment where many such laptops exist (for
connectivity) and in places where cost is _not_ a choice. Savings are not a
consideration, for this is simply what can be afforded.
