  • LAPTOP Magazine reviews the new Asus Eee PC 701

    Those lucky pants-wearing geeks over at LAPTOP got their grubby mitts on the new Asus Eee PC 701 and gave it a full review. The verdict? Four out of five stars and an Editors’ Choice award. Not bad, huh? There will be many who say that for $400 you could buy a full-sized basic laptop running Vista and that to spend the same amount of money on this thing would be downright foolish.

  • Asus's eee PCs get names, specs, real

    When the lines between UMPC and laptop get blurred, we get confused, angry, agitated, and aroused. It’s an odd reaction mixture, sure, but our shrink says it’s natural. That’s what we’re feeling now on news that Asus’s eee PC line has new models and a new naming scheme. Ok, not the most earthshattering news, but those who’ve been anticipating these… Read More

  • ASUS Xonar U1 external USB audio scrubber

    These look like very old-school flying saucers, the broken down wobbly ones that low-income aliens fly. To be fair, such technology is still far more advanced than tooling around in a Honda Element all day, so let’s cut poor Zanzork some slack. Anyway, in a desperate attempt to get back on track I’d like to tell you that the devices listed above are not spacecraft. They are… Read More

Should come out in October, but there’s no word on how much… Read More

  • ASUS To Become "Competitive"

    Watch yo’ back Dell and Toshiba. ASUS, everyone’s favorite OEM parts manufacturer, is splitting up its business into two sectors to become “more competitive” and to put strength into building a name for itself.

  • Asus Conceputalizes Another Aura

    Although culled from a site that contains questionable Hungarian (someone translate this for me if they can), the Asus Aura concept phone looks like a solid competitor to the iPhone — if it ever comes out. The site claims that the Aura will have a 3.9-inch touchscreen with a foldout QWERTY Keypad, along with a 2-megapixel camera. It also will feature Bluetooth, microSD, miniUSB, and… Read More

  • ASUS G1 and G2 Gaming Laptops Sport Ultra-Gnarly Lights

    Asus has won a place in my heart for not making a gaming laptop that sucks. Its new G1 and G2 laptops are pretty much the same aside from the ultra-gnarly neon lights on the side and screen size. Enough with the small talk though, I know you want the details straight up.

Their WSFe is the first production laptop to market with an secondary display, on the back of the primary LCD. You can use it to check your email (read only), reference notes to yourself, or… Read More
