The scoop wire was running late tonight and these shots of Asus' upcoming Eee Desktop made their way to our inbox just now, so we thought we'd give you the digital relay on the skinny... literally.  Though it's hard to get a sense of size here, this thing is obviously svelte.  We don't have firm details but since this is an Asus "Eee" product, we can assume it follows the same mantra of "Easy to Learn, Easy to Work, Easy to Play".  Maybe a beefed up Linux distro and application bundle?  We'll see...   We should caution you that these are not "official" pictures per se. ...

A little birdie tossed this one over the wall to us and we just had to pass this along to you.   Asus has done so well with their new little ultra-portable, ultra-miserly computer, that they're continuing to flesh out the product family with more flavors than an jacked up all-night rave at Baskin Robbins.  Word is the Windows XP variant of the Eee PC is due out "soon" and of course larger screen format versions have been seen in the wild as well.  However, we've got the first unveiling of the Asus Eee PC 4G-X model right here for you...  Asus' Eee PC 4G-X  - Click...

Hype, we all know the drill.  We've seen it many times before.  There's only so much commotion you can digest before you start to wonder if something is as good as it's played up to be.  Such is the case with the highly anticipated Asus Eee PC.  In fact, this product has been easily the most researched and searched-upon product in the HotHardware.com content database in many years.  Some speculate that this new ultra-mobile PC or UMPC, if you're the acronym-loving type, is an answer to the competitive call of the OLPC XO-1 notebook from the One Laptop per Child organization. ...
