Prices are said to start out $899 but also reach $1,999. That’s notable higher than Intel’s target price of $999 and under. Still, if Intel has its way, ultrabooks will be the next big thing in PC notebooks. The ultra-thin… Read More

  • Will Asus’s Kinect Clone End Up Like Its Wii Clone?

    Will Asus’s Kinect Clone End Up Like Its Wii Clone?

    Asus has been working with Kinect co-creator PrimeSense to put together a PC-based version of Microsoft’s hit depth-detecting game controller. The thought, I presume, was that PC gamers and hackers would like a native device and an open platform for gesture-based game and OS controls. Their creation has been around for a bit, but we haven’t heard much regarding it, perhaps because… Read More

  • Weekend Giveaway: Man Cave Gear For Pops

Usually he gets a tie or a chess set or a fancy prize-winning goat (it was a weird year that year at the Biggs house, let me tell you). But does he ever get a full home gaming/3D video/Blu-Ray playing All-In-One gaming center? With speakers? And fancy lights? Well now you can send Dad what he really wants. Read More

  • Transformer Overclocked To An Unstable But Still Awesome 1.4GHz


    The Transformer runs the modest 1GHz Tegra 2 platform, but that clearly isn’t enough. More power, right, Clarkson? Some clever folks over at XDA recently outed a custom kernel that bumps the clockspeed to 1.4GHz. It’s just too bad that this particular kernel with its super-speed chip leaves the Transformer unstable and therefore a bit useless for most. However, for those out… Read More

  • Asus Takes To Facebook To Tease Its Next….Tablet Or Phone

    It’s a trap! A PR trap. I’ll bite. Asus just posted a teaser images on its official Facebook page of some unknown device. The trick here is that while it’s clearly a slate device, the company is purposely not saying if it’s a phone or tablet. In fact that’s seemingly the point of the Facebook page in that it asks that exact question. “Break The Rules: Pad… Read More

  • As Production Ramps Up In June, The Asus Transformer Will Hit The Japanese Market

  • Even An Asus Netbook Can Run Crysis 2

    Crytek went to great pains throughout the development of Crysis 2 to stress that it wasn’t going to be a repeat of the first game. You weren’t going to need a monstrous machine merely to get 20 frames per second. No, Crytek said, we’ve managed to get the game running on the Xbox 360! And if the 360 can run it, what can’t run it? Not the Asus Eee 1215B, that’s… Read More
