I'm not entirely sure it's the fault of ASUS. There were a LOT of 701
machines left and they had to price-cut to sell them. I found an old 2007
stock one in Harvey Norman Toowoomba, Qld going for $199 just recently. The
windows machines sold well. Laws of Supply and Demand predict that the 701
won't be a product that Australian stores like Harvey Norman et all will be
ordering, so ASUS might have decided not to import any more...

Pity I don't need a second one... Could have bought that Toowoomba one! :)
