Asus had confirmed in the past that they would also play their cards in the Tablet PC game, acknowledging that they'd issue a Tegra 2-based Eee Pad at some point in the future to rival Apple's iPad and the spate of other rival machines sure to hit the market during 2010. But few details beyond the general plans to launch were announced. Now, it looks like Asus has begun to firm things up somewhat, with a new report stemming from a Q1 investors conference in Taipei casting new light on a launch time frame. Computex is scheduled to begin in early June in Taiwan, and given the home crowd advantage, Asus will use this trade show to officially unveil the Eee Pad, or the series of Eee Pad Tablets,...

If you've managed to glance through any of our recent netbook reviews, you'd know that we're big fans of NVIDIA's Ion. This technology has enabled netbooks to handle multi-media in a way they never could using older integrated GPUs, and we honestly wish there were more options out there just like it. One area that often gets overlooked is just how important a GPU is when browsing the Web, particularly when viewing graphically intense sites like Bing Maps or YouTube HD. Believe it or not, the GPU is becoming a more and more important part of browsing as the Web advances, and that trend isn't slowing down soon.NVIDIA managed to get an early build of Internet Explorer 9 onto a pair of netbooks,...

Will the Eee PC netbook line ever end? It's a reasonable question, but at the current point in time, we can't see it ever fading completely away. Asus helped to make the netbook popular as a segment, and the Eee PC is still widely known as the go-to netbook line. The new Eee PC Seashell line is the company's most recent attempt to overhaul the original, and these are generally viewed as the "stylish" netbooks, slim and sleek and packed with long battery life. The Eee PC 1001PX is the newest in a long line of portable, low-cost machines, with this one using Windows 7 Starter and promising "all day computing" with a battery capable of lasting for nine hours on a full charge. It also relies on Intel's... Read more...
Tablet PCs may be all the rage right now, but there's still the question of how many people actually want to use a keyboard-less slate. We're guessing that the novelty may wear off, and that most folks will end up yearning for an actual keyboard to bang on. For that reason, we think there is a lot of attractiveness in something like the 10.1" Eee PC T101MT, which acts like a tablet if you'd like, but flips around and becomes a netbook when you need a full gamut of keys. The machine was introduced a couple of months ago, but it has since been lost under the iPad and Tegra 2 news that has been seeping from every corner. Asus has equipped this with a 1024x600 panel (multi-touch), Windows 7 Home... Read more...
Asus has been a huge fan of USB 3.0, and they have definitely supported the protocol on a few Eee PC machines and motherboards early on. We personally think everyone should be shifting to USB 3.0 as soon as possible, and it's tough to swallow any new PCs with "just" USB 2.0. Now, Asus is making a challenge to every other company out there: shift to USB 3.0, or get left behind. Asus was the first major company to include USB 3.0 on a mainboard, and the company has a huge lineup of USB 3.0 motherboards on the horizon. They are also promising to include it on a number of upcoming Eee PC netbooks (1018, 1015 and 1016), the N Series of notebooks and the Eee Box 1510U and Eee Box 1210U. Having USB... Read more...
Just when you think you've got your head around Asus' Eee PC netbook family, another one is born. As the siblings continue to increase in number, it's getting harder and harder to keep track of which machine is which, but one thing is for sure: this new one is one of the most promising Eee PCs yet. The Eee PC 1005PR ships with Windows 7 Starter, a 10.1" HD display (1366x768), a battery that can last up to 11 hours and up to 750GB of storage space (250GB onboard + 500GB of Asus WebStorage). This one also features the Seashell design, Bluetooth v2.1, a multi-touch trackpad, Intel's Atom N450, up to 2GB of DDR2 memory, Wi-Fi, a 0.3MP web camera, a VGA output, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, a 6-cel...

ASUS' Eee PC line is about to get three new models. According to leaked details from blogeee, the three new models–the Eee PC 1018P, the Eee PC 1016P, and the Eee PC 1015P–all have 10-inch displays and likely run on Intel’s latest Pine Trail Atom processors. Although we aren't likely to see official details from ASUS until CeBIT 2010, a few more leaked details are currently available. For starters, the ASUS Eee PC 1015P is apparently a refresh of the current Eee PC 1005P. The most noticeable upgrade with this newer model is a larger touchpad. The Eee PC 1015P features an aluminum body and touts a battery life rated for up to 14hrs. The ASUS Eee PC 1016P reportedly targets business users with... Read more...
If you consider Intel's design execution over the past 12 months or so, you'd have to admit it's nothing short of impressive. Not only did we see the launch of a new desktop chip with the Core i7, but Intel then ramped up clock speeds, introduced lower cost mainstream variants of the platform, and then drove that technology down into the mobile market with the introduction of Clarksfield, otherwise known as Core i7 mobile. Of course all of that execution was centered around more powerful computing platforms with larger form factors and the thermal and power budgets that go with them. These products, though huge contributors to Intel's bottom line, didn't cater to the ultra-mobile set of device... Read more...

The proliferation of NVIDIA's Ion GPU has been a long time coming. We've been talking about its merits for the better part of this year, but only recently has it been able to find its way into more than a handful of mainstream, shipping netbooks. We recently had a look at HP's Mini 311 with Windows 7 Home Premium, and while the Ion definitely enabled smooth HD playback where it was previously impossible with a paltry 1.6GHz Atom N270 and Intel IGP, the CPU bottleneck held back the entire system. Today, however, we're taking a look at a much more powerful system. Asus has come a long way since the launch of its original Eee PC. 7" and 8" netbooks are no longer the norm, and the availability of... Read more...

Netbooks based around NVIDIA's Ion graphics technology aren't entirely new, though the few that are equipped just started shipping recently. Up until now, Asus has managed to avoid Ion within its expanding Eee PC line, but we're thrilled to see the company's first netbook announced with what amounts to being a real, hard-working GPU.The Eee PC 1201N Multimedia Netbook ($499 MSRP) is one of the best specced netbooks out there, packing an Atom 330 processor (dual core), NVIDIA Ion graphics, a total of 750GB hybrid storage, a 12.1" HD screen, HDMI output, 2GB or 3GB of DDR2 RAM, Wi-Fi and a 0.3MP camera. It will ship in black or silver, but a specific release date isn't available. Normal 0 false... Read more...
It's hard to think "netbook" without thinking "Eee PC," so it's understandable why so many SSD upgrade solutions are tailor made for Asus' heralded netbook line. Just a half-year after Super Talent introduced a slew of SSD upgrades for the company's S101, Active Media Products has pushed out a line of its own to beef up a wider range of Eee PCs. The new SaberTooth family is built with MLC NAND chips and have been tested to function perfectly with the Eee PC S101, 900, 900A and 901. As expected, the line will be offered in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities (SaberTooth SS), and Active Media claims that these are the fastest solid state drives available for the line of netbooks, supporting sequential...

If Asus doesn't make a machine you like (or are at least fond of in some way), you aren't looking hard enough. As the company famous for putting the netbook (and thus, the Eee PC) on the map continues to broaden its horizons in the notebook market, it's taking a breather from shipping new "Seashell" machines to introduce a horse of a startlingly different color. The Eee PC T91 is unlike any Eee PC we've seen before, namely because the screen can be spun around and flipped down. tablet PC style. This so-called "netvertible" sector is still in its earliest stages, making the T91 one of the first netbooks available that also doubles as a full-fledged Tablet PC. Furthermore, it's one of the...
