CES 2009: asus eee keyboard pc

computers get smaller and smaller every year. last year’s CES featured a number of stripped down net-books like the asus eee pc. these tiny laptops shrunk things dow2n even further, but now asus has returned to CES 2009 with the eee keyboard, a pc in a keyboard. the new design features a thin and slick looking keyboard that would compliment any pc. however this keyboard doesn’t need a computer tower of monitor since it is completely self-contained. to the right of the keyboard is a small screen about the size of the iphone. the back features all the necessary ports and plugs and a built in battery allows it to be portable. while the computer is only a prototype at this point, it is a novel way to look at the future of mini computing.

  • Whole unit in a keyboard ? 🙂 That’s remind me an old times with Atari and Commodore Amiga 🙂 So…that idea isn’t new 😛 But in my opinion it’s nice 🙂

  • Not as nice as the Dana(?), though more powerful. And looking over to the right would give me a crick in the neck. Not that I’d throw it away if I saw it at a yard sale for .

    pbasch says:
  • A split keyboard layout with the screen in the center would seem more comfortable to use.

    kayakim says:
  • I SAY TAKE THE SCREEN OUT COMPLETELY AND ADD A PROJECTOR. THEY MAKE THEM SO SMALL NOW THEY CAN FIT IN CELL PHONES SO THERE IS NO REASON WHY IT CANT FIT IN THAT. THEN ALL YOU NEED IS A WALL!
