Apple has already hidden an entire computer behind the monitor – I even remember a "story" in which a police raid was thwarted because "the miscreant took all the computers, leaving only the screens"; yes, they were iMacs. Now, how about hiding a computer under the keyboard? That's what ASUS did on the Eee Keyboard.
Behind these innocent keys "Chiclet" there is a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB memory, Wi-Fi antenna and Bluetooth. Connect what are you looking for? Because the Eee Keyboard offers more than a MacBook Air: an HDMI port, two USB 2.0 ports, VGA output, audio input and output and, in the top of the line model, wireless HDMI. To serve as a cherry on top, to the right of the QWERTY keyboard there is a 5-inch OLED screen (800 × 480 pixel resolution) that is touch sensitive – practically my golden dream of ?keyboard + trackpad?, which is only improved.
With these features, this device is not expected to be a replacement for a 24 ? iMac: the purpose of this turbocharged keyboard is to serve as a PC for your home theaterIt is something you use to browse the internet without having to leave the living room – or the sofa, as there is a wireless model. Given the storage options, you can?t really expect it to act as a digital center, with all your movies and music, or yes, if you have a collection as big as mine. I'm still trying to change that
Scheduled for availability between May and June, costing $ 400 (basic model) to $ 600 (wireless model), the Eee Keyboard is a new way of looking at the desktop all-in-one. I have to say that he hits the nail on the head on a series of spots and may even launch a new fashion, but one thing leaves me with the flea behind my ear: what operating system will run in this beauty? Windows Mobile or any OS from ASUS? Anyway, if it were just the ?keyboard + trackpad?, I would buy it, mainly because the small screen could serve as a numeric keypad in my ?fill in huge spreadsheets? moments!
The good thing about the miniaturization of components is that this kind of thing, previously impossible, is becoming a reality. I can't wait for the day when they hide the entire computer inside a mouse
