  • Asus confirms: "killer" product coming in early June

    We noted a few weeks ago that Asus would be putting out a sweet tablet during Computex Taipei, and now the internet is all a-twitter after their CEO re-confirmed this. He seems pretty optimistic — but the real question is whether they can bring it to market. I mean, I saw the Eee Keyboard more than a year ago and it’s still not in my living room. Can they really make this… Read More

  • Is Asus killing off the Eee Stick?

    The Asus Eee Stick might be dead, folks. According to a Digitimes report, the company has slashed the development department down to only 20 team members from the original 100 and more cuts might be coming. Long story short, the department isn’t delivering the goods. I mean, have we ever seen a good use of the Eee Stick? It’s not like the Eee netbooks were ever that great at gaming. Read More

  • EeeBox PC gets Ion power, can handle 1080p video

    ASUS’ NVIDIA Ion-powered EeeBox PC has gotten sort of official. It’s on ASUS’ website now, at least, although there’s still not much in the way of pricing or availability. The specs look pretty nice, though, with a whisper-quiet setup thanks to a dual-core Atom N330 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 250GB SATA hard drive, 802.11b/g/n wireless, card reader, and, of course, the horsepower… Read More

  • Actually useful LED lights installed on Eee

    Do you know the one thing that I absolutely love about my BlackBerry? The little LED indicator light. That single light informs me when I have a new message, if a call is coming in, if Bluetooth is turned on, and a whole lot more. So why isn’t there such a light on computers? One modder answered that question by installed a three-color LED light on his Eee PC with a very similar… Read More

  • Asus keyboard computer delayed until August

    Our own beardy Devin Coldewey had quite a tech boner for the Asus Eee Keyboard back at CES. At that time, a company representative made a “confidential estimate” that the device would be released in August. Then someone at Asus apparently got all giddy or something and it was announced that the Eee Keyboard would launch in June. Well, June’s almost over and there’s no… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Asus Eee 900 for $170

    Newegg.com is selling the Asus Eee PC 900 for just $170 with free shipping. That’s for a new unit, too, not a refurbished one. The specs won’t blow your toupee off your head but, hey, the price is right. Read More

  • ASUS officially confirms Eee with DVD drive

    Make way for the Eee PC 1004DN, ASUS’ first netbook with a built-in optical drive. Rumors swirled last week, but ASUS made everything official by announcing that the machine will feature a Super-Multi DVD burner, a chiclet-style keyboard, an Express Card slot, multi-touch trackpad, brushed aluminum casing, and almost six hours of battery life.

  • Asus merging EEE PC and netbook divisions: Who's next?


    First, the “news”: Digitimes is reporting that Asustek is considering a merger of their PC and notebook – really netbook – divisions. This means the two divisions will work as one cohesive unit which means lots of people will probably get fired. Fair enough. Now what does this mean in the macro sense? Since the early 2000s, PC and laptop hardware has been converging. Read More

  • Video of the super thin ASUS 1008HA netbook

    Not content to watch MSI steal all the thunder with the X-Slim series, ASUS has lobbed a snowball back with the Eee 1008HA – nicknamed “Sea Shell.” It’s basically a nice-looking 10-inch Eee, though, and not the genre-defying 13.3-inch X320 that we’ll see from MSI. Read More

  • Video demo: Eee PC Touch UI

    Asus has loaded its netbooks with a custom UI for a few generations now, but the latest feels a bit more evolved. This next-gen UI sits atop the native operating system and can be called into action with just a click of a button. Chances are that the this generation will come on the T91 convertible notebook/tablet where the advanced GUI can really shine. It seems that Asus’s early… Read More

  • Exclusive hands-on with Asus' prototype Eee Keyboard

    Apparently, if you ask nicely, Asus will show you their deepest and darkest secrets. The Eee Keyboard, or Keeeboard (working title) is still very much in a prototype phase, but they were happy to let me look it up and down and give its sweet little touchscreen a spin. I can tell you right now, this thing is really sleek, and what with the wireless HDMI and all the ports, it really could be… Read More

  • Asus HD-ifies its Eee Boxes with Radeons


    Asus announced on Tuesday that they are releasing two new versions of their Eee Box, with some new features. The new versions have a high definition hardware decoder (a Radeon 3400), HDMI out and a remote. The hardware decoder should improve performance, possibly making this a decent choice for a HTPC solutions. While the hardware and software seem better, I’d like to see it come in… Read More

  • ASUS Eee Top PC's dropping in both 20- and 22-inch sizes too

    ASUS has plans to make its Eee Top PCs a big thing with yet more screen sizes. So far the company has announced a 15.6-inch version of the touchscreen PC, but now the company prez is stating that larger sizes will be available as well. We’re talking both a 20- and 22-inch version. Hopefully, by the time these things drop in the middle of ’09, the 1GB of ram and 160GB HDD will… Read More

  • HP breaks the netbook mold with the Mini 1000 and MIE Linux netbook

    Netbooks have been slowing down over the last year and for the most part, each one is about the same thing with a different logo on the lid. HP’s offerings seem refreshing and polished even though they sport the standard netbook specs of 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 8.9-inch or 10.2-inch display, up to 2 GB of RAM, and either a 60GB HDD or 16GB SSD. The solid-state drive can be complimented… Read More

    Sometime in the coming weeks Toys ‘R’ Us is going to start selling iPods and, more notably, Asus EEE PC’s as the retailer is grasping for higher holiday sales. The iPods are going to be in their own little iPod boutique that is sure to be decorated in novel all white fashion. Read More

  • Russian man turns Eee into car PC

    There’s an idea – rip apart your Asus Eee PC, sprinkle some modifications here and there, and embed it into your car’s dashboard. That’s just what a guy in Russia did. It appears to be a bit more than a mere weekend project, as he’s added a touchscreen, GPS, Bluetooth, a keyboard in the glove box, and the Centrafuse car PC interface. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Asus Eee Box PC for $290.99

    If you like the idea of netbooks in theory but get unnecessarily agitated at the thought of having all that pesky "portability," then maybe you’d be a good candidate for the small form-factor Asus Eee Box PC. It’s specs are as follows: 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, 80GB SATA hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, DVI out, and Windows XP Home. Buy.com currently has it for $290.99 with… Read More

  • Asus bites the bullet, orders reeecall of infected Eee Boxen

    Remember those unfortunate Eee Boxes we mentioned last week that were shipped with an active virus on the hard drive? Well, Asus is being a big boy about it and has ordered a recall. That restores some of the cred they lost last week, but I’m still wary. Apparently the infection came from a USB stick they were using to test the things. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on how you look at… Read More
