  • Yes, Asus, bring back the matte screen love!

    The new 1001PX from Asus isn’t particularly noteworthy spec-wise. 250GB hard drive, 1.66GHz Atom processor… you know the drill. But it’s got a matte screen! I really don’t understand why people want these glossy screens so bad. Just give me the option, whether it’s cheaper or more expensive — I’m tired of staring into a mirror-like surface… 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

    The Eee Top is a low-end PC with a big old touchscreen and, now, Opera. The Eee Top 1602 comes with Opera pre-installed and includes touchscreen-oriented features including gestures and a virtual keyboard.

  • Ghetto DIY: Homemade 12-cell battery for Eee

    Eeeuser forum member TenaciousDre wasn’t content with the Eee’s battery life, but like any real man, he wanted more power. So, he ripped apart his old IBM P2 and Frankensteined the li-ion cells with the Eee’s existing battery pack. Battery life varies depending on what he’s doing, but it ranges anywhere from 4 to 15 hours. But there are some downsides to this mod. Read More

  • New species of EeePC to cost $200, drop next year

    Asus has said they will be pushing their price point down in 2009, possibly to escape the overcrowded $300-$400 netbook arena and compete against the far less capable pocket PCs and smartphones that go for two Benjamins. They haven’t said much aside from that, but could it be that the changes they’re making to the Eee Box are going to spread to the EeePC? A Celeron 220… Read More

  • 32GB, 64GB SSD modules for your Eee PC on sale soon

There’s a 32GB and 64GB module, and they just slip right into your Eee PC. Due for release later this month, there’s no official price. That is, the price is listed as “open” on the Green House Web site, though AkihabaraNews… Read More

  • Wow, Windows 7 runs really well on an Eee PC 1000H

    It’s fair to say that many folks are cautiously optimistic regarding the prospects of Windows 7. One reason why, I believe, is its improved ability to run on netbooks. (Vista is sorta unruly on netbooks, as you might imagine.) Laptop mag did the heavy lifting and installed the Windows 7 beta (which is easy to find on the usual BitTorrent sites, by the way) on the Asus Eee PC… Read More

  • Want a $200 Eee PC? You only have to wait till next year

    Asus plans to release a $200 Eee PC sometime in 2009, according to Jerry Shen, the company’s president. That’s on top of the company’s plans to release a touchscreen Eee PC in 2009. Might we be looking at, finally, the year of the netbook? One can only dream. While I’m quick to discount netbooks as hallow attempts to bilk you good people out of your money, thereby… Read More

  • Asus: Expect touchscreen Eee PCs early next year; Windows 7 Eee PCs soon after

    The Asus Eee PC turned one year old the other day—people danced in the streets! Fun aside, the mag did get a chance to interview the company’s CEO, Jerry Sheen (that’s not him, by the way, just some random guy), to get his thoughts on the Eee PC, its future, etc. The biggest news here is that Sheen admitted that a touchscreen Eee PC should be available by early 2009. Exactly… Read More

  • Asus Eee PC 901 to start shipping with built-in 3.75G networking

    The Asus EeePC 901 will come with built-in 3.75G networking when it’s released next month. Asus swears up and down that the addition of 3.75G won’t adversely affect battery life, which it claims stands at 7.5 hours. We shall see. On paper, 3.75G is as fast as 7.2Mbps down and 2 Mbps up. Your real world speeds may vary. She’s based on that Intel Atom platform. You have your… Read More

  • Asus' revolutionary 10.2-inch screened netbook gets priced

    Well, it’s revolutionary if you believe what we said before. That article may have been mockery, but it’s so hard to tell with Doug. At any rate, the nice-looking Asus N10 series is out there, ready to be pre-ordered, although at $850 it’s not exactly in the budget netbook realm. I’m sure it’s a nice little laptop, but at nearly a thousand dollars… Read More

  • Eeexquisite, sub-1"-thick Eee S101 cradled by Asus CEO

    The “exquisite,” “elite,” “extreme slim” Eee model, the S101 (as seen in the pyramid o’ Eee) has been caught in the wild. I think I’ll let the Google translation do the talking: ASUS held on the 6th of that meeting, ASUS CEO Jerry Shen Xue on Apple with a paper bag containing Eee PC S101, the imminent end of a sudden display market, the law… Read More

  • Eee PC getting bigger battery and storage… again?

    DigiTimes is reporting that Asustek, maker of the Eee PC, expects to increase battery life and storage capacity by the end of this year. The report is exceptionally light, with no concrete numbers and vague promises Asustek Computer expects to introduce new features for its Eee PC range including “whole-day” battery life and Internet storage. The question now seems to be, is… Read More

  • Original flavor Eee PC for ¥100, no gaijin please

    If you’re in Japan and don’t have the scrilla to lay out for an Eee (really though, is it that much?), head over to a Kojima store and pick yourself up one for ¥100, and get a free 3G USB modem. That’s about 75 cents to us Americans. What’s the catch, apart from it only being available in Japan? Well, first of all it’s the original, 7-inch, 4GB Eee &mdash… Read More

  • An Eee 1000H broken down and laid bare

    Tweaktown has (in an inexplicably explicitly-worded article) taken apart one of the new, black Eee PCs and checked out all its bits and bytes. To be honest, there’s not much in the way of surprises. It’s mostly common OEM hardware, the expected Atom processor, and the normal layout for webcam, microphone, and all that. What’s nice though is that because the RAM and HDD are… Read More
