Eee Keyboard.

Before I get distracted by new Mac Minis, iMacs and Mac Pros (which look like being announced today), i just wanted to mention the ASUS Eee Keyboard PC, which Engadget has had chance to play with at CeBIT.

Yes, that is it. That keyboard is the whole PC. And a reasonably slim keyboard it is at that. I’m really quite impressed especially since they’ve managed to cram in an Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, a 16GB solid-state drive, ethernet, .11n wireless, bluetooth, speakers, microphone, 2 USB ports, and both VGA and HDMI video outputs! Plus it has a 5-inch touchscreen. Basically, it’s got everything you’d expect from a PC but in a fraction of the space. I’ve always had a soft-spot for the tiny cases that can be created with mini-ITX and nano-ITX kit… but this is a particularly good example. And the Apple-esque slim, rounded keys are a nice addition too. I love it.

Funny how things come back into fashion, eh?
