Online shopping super-hiway

By Jim

I am currently hunting for a mini-notebook.  While I have my trusty Macs and Dells lying around, I somehow still feel the need for a mini-notebook for my other jobs.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably posted help messages on forums, you’ve probably even tiwitted a couple of friends for recommendation.  I’ve YM’ed, Skyped, GTalked, Facebooked, Friendstered my dilema.  In summary, 9 out of 10 would say go for an ASUS EEE PC, 1 said get a powerbook G4 12″ (obviously, he knows where to get a brand new one).

There are many reasons to get another mac, but I think I’d be shooting for an ASUS EEE PC this time.  I think it trumps every electronic in its class, at least for now.

This is a long introduction to a website, but OK… here’s what I am meaning to write about.

www.retrevo.com

Remember all the tasks I did to search for a mini-notebook?  C’mon, I just described my ordeal above.  OK :)  www.retrevo.com is a website that helps you do all those things automatically.

I’ve tried putting in asus eee pc on it’s search box and it came back with:

1.  Lists of manufacturer’s website
2.  Lists of featured online shops who sells it
3.  Lists of reviews and articles about it
4.  Forum posts and blog posts about it
5.  Special deals from bargain shops
6.  Lists of 20+ online shops who also sells it

Need I say more?

The website/portal is still in its beta stage, but I like how it’s currently positioning itself as a powerhouse specialized search engine.
