Want a free Eee PC? Just sign up for a bank account (in Canada)
What happens when computer prices start dropping down below the $300 mark? They become about as valuable as the figurative toaster your bank will give you for opening a new account. Well, a $250 toaster anyway. Honestly, I’m not sure we’ve ever seen a bank actually offer a toaster to new account holders, but I’ve also never seen a bank offer a computer — until now. Because RBC Royal Bank in Canada is giving away free Eee PCs to customers who open a new account, transfer funds from another financial institution, and jump through a few other hoops.
