ASUS' FV6 scented laptops now on sale

Back on Wednesday, an ASUS rep told us that its line of scented F6V notebooks — available in floral blossom, morning dew, blue ocean, and dark musk odors — was not going to be widely available to the public. Our rep said that a New York retailer had bought all the F6Vs, as an exclusive product for that store’s customers.

As it turns out, anyone can be a customer, because the store in question is DataVision, a well-known and well-respected seller, that is also offering the smelly systems for sale online.

So, fragrance fans rejoice! You can now get get the world’s only computer / air-freshener combo for $1,274.99 at DataVision.com.
