Every reseller in Malaysia is selling above list price. The most logical model ZE551ML with 4G RAM and 32G ROM is in shortage.
Unfortunately, just about every vendor in Malaysia are selling above list price as above. Moreover, the model that makes the most sense, the 4G RAM plus 32G ROM one, is in great shortage. Really sounds like Asus's strategy to stir things up.
