Asus wants you to break the seal


It’s good to hear good sense coming from a good company like Asus. Sure, one can argue back and forth whether their motherboards are better or worse than Abit’s, or Gigabyte’s, but here they’ve revealed a position every hardware manufacturer should emulate:

ASUS Computer International (“ASUS”) recently received feedback from one of its valued customers with questions concerning the purpose of a seal stating, “Warranty Void If Removed” over the access door to the single SODIMM slot on some models of the ASUS Eee PC. ASUS wishes to assure its customers that merely breaking or removing this kind of seal will not void the ASUS Limited Warranty.

They go on to say that while they’d like things to be done their way, they want their customers to be able to buy and use their products without fear of breaking some ridiculous decree enforcing hardware virginity. Let’s hear it for Asus, and let’s hope other companies will follow suit.
