Asus News: Eee Top, Eee PC 1008HA, Eee Sticks, Eee Keyboard PC, Amazon's Kindle App

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Apple move aside because at CeBIT this year, Asus looks like they're pulling out the stops. Who needs to pay over $2,000 USD for an iMac when you can get the Asus Eee Top all-in-one PC for just $600 USD. You can now pre-order these online. If you're still interested, the Asus Eee Top will have a 15.6-inch screen, a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, an integrated webcam and will run on Windows XP. Amazon says that they will be available on March 9, but like i said, you can pre-order them right now. Gizmodo points out that "if 15.6 inches is a bit too small for you, rumor has it that your patience could be rewarded with a 22-inch version coming out later."

Asus will continue their pressure on Apple by releasing the Asus Eee PC 1008HA. If you want to see how thin the netbook is from the side then just click on this link. It is clearly a MacBook Air competitor. The netbook manages to stay about 1-inch thick, weighs only 2.4 pounds and has a 92 percent-sized keyboard.

Meet the Nintendo Wii Asus Eee Sticks. Clearly a Wii rival, but obviously won't be as popular. The Asus Eee Sticks were available for viewing at CeBIT this year. They are motion sensing sticks, similar to the Wii's sticks. Judging from the picture, it looks like they were showing off some tennis.

I briefly talked about this Asus Eee keyboard PC over a month ago and it looks like there are some more details regarding this peripheral. The Eee keyboard PC will be on sale this May or June. They will be going for $400 USD and $600 USD for the wired model and the wireless model, respectively. Finally, the specs have been revealed. With the Eee keyboard PC you get a 5-inch touchscreen display, a 1.6 GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, a 16 or 32GB SSD, WiFi, Bluetooth, wireless HDMI, 2 USB slots, VGA, HDMI and audio in/out. These are pretty good specs for a keyboard PC, did i mention that it won't be a pain to carry around?

We'll take a break from Asus for the last paragraph. Here is a look of Amazon's Kindle app for the iPhone. If you want to read up on the "First Look" just go to this link to read up on it. It's a fairly long post, so i just though i'd warn you first.
