The Eee Keyboard has been on our minds since Asus first announced it months upon months ago. We've heard a few release dates, and we've watched the days go by as delays set in. As of now, the device seems to have slipped from most everyone's mind. We're sure it'll make a revived push for attention when Asus finally does get everything worked out so it can produce it for the masses, but until then, you can expect smaller names to jump at the chance to ride the wave that has already been created for it. Take NorhTec, for example. These guys have been known for producing lower-end, lower-cost goods that don't do much else other than spruce up an already thriving market, but oftentimes it's companies... Read more...
The Asus Eee Top ET2002 is an all-in-one desktop computer that provides the basics for everyday computing as well as multimedia entertainment in a space-saving design. It features a large, 20-inch 16:9 widescreen display and a 1.6GHz dual core Intel Atom 330 processor. Perhaps one of the coolest new features of the ET2002 is the fact that it is one of the first all-in-one computers from Asus to feature NVIDIA Ion integrated graphics for additional multimedia processing horsepower and perhaps even a bit of light gaming. While the basic components of the ET2002 aren't all that different from those found in your typical netbook, this computer is able to handle HD video and a few other higher-end... Read more...

Asus is probably best known today for its help in sparking the netbook revolution. The Eee PC is often considered the original netbook, and judging by the dozens of models available, we'd say they've been quite a hit for the PC maker. But netbooks aren't all that Asus offers, and we have to confess that the Eee Keyboard is one of the most unique and most interesting products we've seen in quite some time.Originally showcased earlier in the year, this sleek keyboard actually has a PC within it. As in, a full fledged computer inside of a keyboard. We know it sounds wild, and that's because it is. For months now, we've known that the device was high on the list of priorities for Asus, but we didn't... Read more...
If you were considering entering the e-reader market, it's pretty safe to say your window of opportunity has all but closed. Amazon already has a major chunk of the overall market share, but even overseas, companies like BeBook and Sony have perfectly acceptable options on store shelves. Now, one more player is entering the lion's den, and boy, they're sure packing quite the promise.While most e-book reader companies have competed on features and ease of use as early adopters generally ignored price points, Asus is making a stand and looking out for the bargain hunter. You heard right--Asus, the same company responsible for the Eee PC and the netbook revolution, is getting into the arena. According... Read more...

We have no issues with companies setting high goals, but this one's amongst the tallest of tall orders that we've seen. Currently, Apple is atop its game. Never before has the company been so iconic and influential in society, and it's pretty much a given that Apple's media players are the ones to beat. Heck, even its smartphone is giving rivals from RIM, HTC and Palm a run for their money. That said, we still feel Asus' ambitions to "out-Apple Apple" aren't totally far-fetched. Just a few years ago, Asus was a name known only by PC enthusiasts. Mainstream consumers pointed their notebook purchases at Dell and HP, while Asus sat in the back corner struggling to be taken seriously. Now, it's a... Read more...
Anyone who has followed Asus' continually expanding Eee PC line will understand just how significant a diversion the product we'll be looking at in this showcase is for the company. Since the very beginning, Asus' pioneering netbooks designs have looked about like the Eee PC 1000HE that we reviewed back in February. Simple, if not boxy enclosures were a given, and while you may find a few curves or accents here or there, you could tell that style was not always in the foreground with these utilitarian, low-cost notebooks. Today, we're looking at the very first Eee PC netbook that looks nothing at all like its predecessors. In fact, we'd wager that Asus included this machine... Read more...
For the longest while, Asus' Eee PC line has remained unchanged. New models have arrived, but none have looked drastically different than any that came before it. Recently, the company has been making strides to change things up, with the Eee PC 1008HA Seashell and this new T91 being exceptionally different. The Eee PC T91 is a convertible tablet PC, but in miniature form. In fact, it features a screen that's just 8.9", but that screen is touch-friendly. Naturally, Asus bundles in an array of specially designed software here to take advantage of the touchscreen. The TouchSuite platform enables users to touch photos, create photo albums with your hands and leave yourself desktop memos. The machine... Read more...
We've always heard that setting your sights high was the best way to come close, but evidently Asus isn't up to speed on that mantra. Currently, it's the world's fifth largest PC maker, and while one might assume that it would aspire to be number one, a recent Reuters report says otherwise. In fact, it's openly aiming to grab the bronze medal by 2011 -- but again, who's satisfied with third place?To be candid, we have all ideas that the CEO would love to overtake Dell, Acer and HP in order to become the planet's largest PC maker, but maybe it's just being realistic here. Indeed, jumping up two spots in the rankings within three years is still a mighty tall order, but with its hot-as-fire Eee... Read more...
If you're in the market for a new ultraportable, you should definitely take a glance at Asus' newest offerings. Branching out from its basic Eee PCs and monsterous gaming rigs, the company has followed up its stylish U Series with the Eee PC Seashell 1008HA, a computer that's barely worthy of the Eee PC name. In fact, we'd say it could be sold on its own -- it's just a different breed of Eee entirely. The miniature notebook weighs in at 1.1kg (2.42 pounds) and includes a 10" display, ergonomically designed keyboard, intelligent energy management system and an intuitive multi-touch touchpad. The most striking difference between this Eee PC and the others (like the 1000HE) is the stunning exterior.... Read more...

Asus has just announced that its Eee Top ET1602, which was introduced at the tail end of last month, is finally shipping in North America. The Eee Top, like most other Eee machines, is designed with simplicity and cost effectiveness in mind. The all-in-one PC incorporates a 15.6-inch touchscreen display, an Intel Atom processor and an easy-to-grasp user interface that should make getting from app to app via finger inputs a breeze.The ET1602 also includes a built-in webcam, array microphone, wireless capabilities, an optional external DVD drive and an integrated carry handle for making the ten pound system one that's highly portable. Obviously, power consumption is expected to be low with the... Read more...
Today we’ve got a detailed look at the latest revision of the Asus line of Eee PC 1000 series netbooks – the Asus Eee PC 1000HE.  Asus continues to refine their hugely successful 10” netbook family.    Here’s a snip: The fit and finish, build quality and overall allure of this machine isn't all that different versus its closely related family members. And, as you can certainly tell from the model number, Asus didn't intend for it to be any huge departure from the norm. In fact, the 1000HE leads you on to believe that this is simply an Extended version (in terms of battery life, not cargo room) of the existing 1000H. In many ways, that's absolutely true, but as you'll see when venturing... Read more...
Asus continues to broaden their Eee PC line of netbooks, as we roll through the first quarter of 2009. Clearly, however, Asus was aiming more for evolutionary than revolutionary with its latest Eee PC 1000HE.  Even though it's largely unchanged from its siblings, there are still enough refinements to the product here to take notice. For the most part, Asus took aim at rival machines that were praised for their usability and portability but hammered when it came time to examine battery life. Essentially, the 1000HE wraps up everything the world has come to know and love about the Eee netbook line, but also offers a few enhancements like a faster Atom N280 processor, a new keyboard layout...

The Eee Top ET1602 builds upon Asus' popular line of Eee-branded products by introducing an all-in-one desktop form factor, complete with a 15.6" touch screen. Like the Eee PC netbooks that preceded it, the Eee Top ET1602 is built around Intel's low-power Atom platform, with the 945 GSE chipset. Other features include an integrated webcam and 802.11n Wi-Fi, 4W speakers with SRS Premium Sound enhancement, and a flash memory card reader. At about $599, the Eee Top ET1602 is relatively expensive considering its performance, but its integrated touch screen and proprietary Asus Eee applications help to somewhat justify the investment for a system that offers such ease of use and innovative touch interface...

Yesterday, at a posh New York hotel suite in Manhattan, Asus held a coming-out event that we decided to attend, mixing it up a little with the glitz-n-glamor set if you will.  With a Jazz band droning in a Miles Davis sort of groove permeating the air, some Champagne, and a sprinkling of model-quality hotties tip-toeing about showing off the wares, Asus wanted to make a statement about their new Eee PC S101.  Above all, this product is about quality and style.  Asus' new Eee PC S101 is a 10" Eee PC variant that comes pre-loaded with Windows XP SP3 and nearly identical specs to the Eee PC 1000H, except for some rather healthy chassis design changes and a selection of higher...

In an interview with Laptop, ASUS' CEO, Jerry Shen, confirmed that ASUS will introduce a new Eee PC sometime in the second half of 2009 that will have a touch screen and run Windows 7. Given that Microsoft has said it plans general availability of the new operating system around January 2010, there’s a bit of a discrepancy here. Promising more details in the first quarter of next year (we’re guessing CES), Shen also indicated that the company doesn’t plan on putting Vista on any of the Eee PCs.Other noteworthy snippets from the interview: The company has sold four million Eee PCs to date. Touch-enabled Eee PCs are coming in early 2009. ASUS is exploring a convertible mode and a regular laptop... Read more...

It has been almost exactly one year since we saw the Asus Eee line of notebooks hit store shelves and it has been quite a year for this little side project from Asus. The original Asus Eee PC lineup, even with its flaws, turned out to be a massive surprise hit, as Asus hit a price and form factor that the market was finally ready to adopt for an ultra-mobile notebook. The Eee PC, while not truly the first of its kind, cemented the "netbook' product category, which has encouraged potential buyers to accept this genre of products. Since its release, we've seen nearly every major OEM produce a similar product to compete with the Eee, although Asus's six month lead in this arena has... Read more...
