ASUS wants you to know that women and children are strong enough for an Eee PC

So it turns out the product page for the Eee PC 900 includes this unusual line: "8.9-inch screen does not affect the overall weight of the Eee PC 900, which remains below 1kg -- allowing children and women to carry it with ease." Hey now, even putting aside the fact that calling women weak went out of vogue decades ago, let's also not harsh on the really muscular kids. For example, Richard Sandrak (above), the world's strongest boy. That little dude could probably lift his weight in Eee PCs, so don't mess, ASUS.
