Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2009

Asus EzLink LCD MonitorAt the recently concluded CeBIT expo in Germany Asus introduced a new line of energy-efficient LCD monitors as well as their EzLink series – the first wireless monitor from the company. Users will need to hook up their displays using a Wireless Host Controller Interface (WHCI) or Wireless USB Host Wire Adapter (HWA).

Word is that there isn’t any noticeable degradation of quality compared to conventional wired displays, which is welcome news. Both the VH192C and VH196 are energy-efficient models that look out for the environment and are manufactured using low levels of mercury and just a few lamps. The end result is a power savings of over 20%.

Posted in ASUS by Shane McGlaun on March 4th, 2009

Asus Eee 1004DNAt CES 2009 in January I used a netbook, the MSI Wind U100, exclusively at the show. It didn’t take long to realize that the business world today still expects you to have access to an optical drive. The vast majority of information given at the show was on CD or DVD, which is a problem considering the netbook lacks an optical drive.

The Asus Eee 1004DN has hit the FCC website seeking approval for sale in the US. The netbook will fix the issue many netbook users have of the missing optical drive. The 1004DN is the first netbook to feature an integrated optical drive in the Asus line.

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2009

Asus Stealth conceptNotebooks don’t have to just flip open and be one half keyboard, one half display. Designer Patrick Dotimas developed a concept known as the Asus Stealth, a personal computer that functions as a laptop or a desktop based on its application.

The second half can be removed for a traditional desktop layout, or can fold out like a normal notebook. So it gives you the best of both worlds. It’s a great idea and the timing is right in the marketplace, so we hope to see this one surface as a reality real soon.
