nierowow.jpg
On the Intel/Asus-sponsed WePC.com, Destructoid's Niero Gonzalez had the same thought about dual touchscreen laptops that many of us have, but has made it oh-so-much-more compelling with a mockup of playing World of Warcraft on such a machine.…

Laptop Magazine has gotten a sneak peak at the new Asus Eee 1000HE and the new chiclet style keyboard is a great success, allowing the reviewer to rattle off over 83 words per minute, plucking gingerly down on the right…

Juice and a workable keyboard are the only things that really matter to me in a netbook, and that's why the Asus Eee 1000HE looks swank. It's basically the 1000HA except with a chiclet keyboard, 802.11 draft n support,…

With the help of NYC Resistor, Flickr user revolvingdork etched the entire world map of Super Mario Land for the Nintendo Gameboy on the case of his Eee netbook. I assume he used a pattern he found on the…

Review: A week with Asus' EeePC 1002HA netbook

1002HA.jpg
Asus's 1002HA is an attractive little laptop that could easily pass for something several times its $500 price. It's only when you open it up and find a more-or-less standard netbook that it becomes clear it's not a new rival…

Asus' S121 follows on the heels of its luxury netbook, the S101, with the only major difference being a horizontal expansion to 12 inches.. at which point, the designation of "netbook" no longer applies. For some reason, this really irks…

Spotted at Italian Eee fansite EeePC.it, news of a Celeron-equipped desktop adds yet another Eee PC to the dozens already in existence. Otherwise similar to current Atom-powered models, the Celeron Eee Box will offer similar performance from its older, cheaper,…

Eee Box goes high-def with HDMI and swankier video chip

20081202-a-1.jpg
Asus's Eee Box, a desktop counterpart to its miniature subnotebooks, just got a spec bump. Moreover, the thing it added was, for once, meaningful: a discrete video card, with 256MB of RAM and a HDMI port. This means the little…
