Asus unveils new EeeKeyboard PC
Asus has rolled out (at long last, after numerous delays) its EeeKeyboard PC — this is a fully-functional PC that looks like your standard keyboard at first glanced, but you will be pleasantly surprised to know that there is a svelte and stylish keyboard concealed within. It has been a long time in coming, having been first unveiled at CES back in 2009, taking its own sweet time to hit the streets. Tipping the scales at a mere 1kg, the EeeKeyboard PC is capable of functioning with virtually any HDTV, monitor, or projector in order for it to function as a full-fledged PC. Users will be able to enjoy a wireless computing platform via the EeeKeyboard PC thanks to its Ultra-wideband (UWB) Wireless Display connectivity that lets you stream HD 720p videos up to a 5-meter range, while hitting a maximum 10-meter range where non-video transfers are concerned. Apart from that, you also get a built-in 5″ multi-touch panel that offers users with an interactive and intuitive means of directing the on-screen cursor to launch programs, send instant messages, and control its media player.
Folks who want to save space on their desktop will definitely find the EeeKeyboard PC a suitable purchase, where it can also double up as a family multimedia entertainment center – all you need to do is hook it up with a monitor in the study or office and let it run the course as a standard PC, while others can always hook it up to a projector in a conference room for presentations. Features include a durable and shock-proof solid state drive that makes sure that all your data stored within will remain safe during transit, coupled with integrated conveniences including the microphone and high quality stereo speakers, letting you enjoy EeeKeyboard PC’s full range of features without the need to fork out more dough for additional accessories.

- Windows XP Home
- 5″ 800×480 Multi-touch Panel
