  • Eee all-in-one touchscreen PC: a good first step

    Remember that Eee Monitor from a while back? Well! It’s all growns up and it’s sporting a touchscreen and Windows XP. I have to say, though, as nice as it would be to have a little XP touchscreen around the house, the specs are a little lacking: 1GB of RAM, a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 160GB HDD, and 128GBMB (heh) of shared graphics. The 15.6-inch screen would be nice to run your… Read More

  • Eee Box: virii preee-loaded for your conveeenience

    Oh dear, this won’t go well. What does it say about your company when a product ships with a virus intact on the hard drive? Does it say something about their quality control? Or maybe about the internal security of the company? Whatever it says, it ain’t good. If I can’t trust them to run a virus scan on their junk before sending it out, can I really trust the build quality? Read More

  • DIY Eee 701 tablet kit coming – eventually

    A forum poster at is creating a conversion kit for the Eee 701 that turns the wee-pc into a Samsung-ish UMPC. The collage kid is either genius or lazy too as it seems that the kit is simply a way to flip the LCD around on and display it on what was the lid. That way, the bottom part of the laptop doesn’t have to be ripped out and installed in another bezel. That’s at… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Refurbished XP-based Eee for $299

    Here’s just about the least expensive way to get into a Windows-based netbook at the moment. is selling refurbished Eee PCs in black or white for $299. This is the 4G 701 model, which has a 4GB solid state drive, 512MB of RAM, and Windows XP. Again, they’re refurbished, but you’ll get a 90-day warranty and a low, low price. You can also get a refurbished Linux… Read More

  • Splashtop instant-on OS to be found on Asus B202 box

    Ubergizmo is reporting that the Asus Eee B202, seen above, will feature the Express Gate instant-boot OS by Splashtop. It’s a simple, quick, lightweight Linux-based operating system that offers near-instant bootup times and access to things like the web, photos, chat, and other relatively simple programs. The B202 has been floating around for a while. Apparently it’ll finally… Read More

  • Jointech throws down the $99 J-PRO JL7100 'Mini Laptop'

    Who says that inflation is driving up the cost of everything? ‘Cause what we have here is a bona fide laptop-ish computer for less than a $100: the Jointech J-PRO JL7100. Sure, it might come from a company we haven’t heard of either, loaded with Windows CE 5.0, and sporting a 7-inch VGA screen, but it’s only a 100 bones. For those still with us, this little guy is equipped with… 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

  • Asus makes bizarro Wiimote for PC use: the Eee Stick

    Asus never stops surprising me. If it’s not an excellent silent video card it’s a tiny laptop, and if it’s not a tiny laptop it’s a freaky bizarro world version of a Wiimote. I’m going to see if I can get my hands on one of these crazy things just to see if it works as well as Nintendo’s; being that Asus probably only started R&D a year ago… Read More

  • Asus still sticking with the whole 7-inch screen thing

    The Asus Eee line of 7-inch netbooks appears to be alive and kicking, thanks to some images over on Eee PC News (in German). It’s believed that the Eee PC 701SD will come in three flavors (see this leaked slide); one marked “701SD(30G HDD)”, one simply marked “701SD”, and one marked “701SD-4G”, so we’ve got one with a 30GB standard hard drive… Read More

  • Holy crap, there will be 23 Eee models before it’s over

    Get right the hell outta town. By the time the sun burns out or December 21, 2012 – whichever comes first – there will be 23 different models of Asus’ venerable Eee PC, according to a presentation slide sent to Engadget Chinese. The netbook models will be divided into three classes: Ultimate, Pro Fashion, and Smart Casual. Read More

  • Belkin’s Eee cases coming to Target in September

    The Asus Eee PC has been successful with “ordinary” people, too. You know, the kind that buy laptop cases at Target — or even the Eee itself. Owners of the tiny netbook will be able to buy three stylish protective cases this September, all for under $25. From left to right, the polyester Mini Laptop Quilted Case will run $19.99, the neoprene Mini Laptop Carrying Case will… Read More

  • All-in-one Eee PC or just a monitor?

    Our buds over at Laptop have some interesting photos of an Eee monitor that might be a 19- or 20-incher with a built-in Webcam. A total of four USB ports, two Ethernet ports, and three audio ports are visible on the monitor/all-in-one. Denon logos suggest the unit has built-in speakers and an amplifier. The Eee monitor is rumored to be priced at $500 with a built-in TV tuner and more than… Read More

  • New Eees to sport bigger keyboards

    The micro-laptop revolution is a really cool thing, to be sure, but not all of us were born with slender, precision-tip hands. I do all right but some of these baby keyboards make me feel like I have ten thumbs. Well, Asus must have heard the cries of the lumpy and misshapen, because the new iterations of the Eee, the 904 and 905, will have more comfortably-sized keyboards. Of course… Read More

  • High-End SSD in an Eee basically doubles performance

    You may have seen the teardown of an Eee 1000H a week ago. That was cool and it also revealed that the hard drive was trivially easy to replace. Of course, the 5400RPM, 80GB drive was never meant as a performance piece, more a cost and energy saver than anything. But if you could replace it with something awesome, why wouldn’t you? And that’s just what these guys did. They took… 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

  • Windows Vista installed on Asus Eee 1000H

    Cameron over at got Windows Vista Ultimate up and running on the new Asus Eee 1000H. The Windows Experience rating is a lowly 1.0, held back by the graphics card, but the system seems to otherwise work. The installation apparently only took about 30 minutes. Bonus points for using AC/DC in the video. Read More

  • New Eee PC models get US pricing, starting at $599

    An Asus rep told Laptop that pricing for the next generation of Eee models would be as follows; Eee PC 901 (Linux or Windows): $599 Eee PC 1000 (Linux or Windows): $699 Eee PC 1000H (Windows only): $649 You’ll recall that the 901 will come with a 12GB SSD if you choose the Windows version or a 20GB drive if you go with Linux. The 1000 will apparently come with a 40GB SSD, but… Read More

  • Asus eee 901 unboxed, hooker-style

    Laptop has some first shots of the Asus eee 901. Instead of a lab, the unboxed the sucker on a bed and next to a breakfast tray, suggesting that Laptop is more attracted to their review products than we initially realized. I do know that Laptop publisher Ed Brown successfully mounted and procreated with an IBM ThinkPad back in 2002, but to see it happen again is perverse. How did they get it? Read More
