Don’t let the name fool you, we aren’t really holding any contests here. What we are talking about is the ASUS Eee Keyboard. Imagine having your entire computer inside your keyboard. That’s what ASUS has accomplished with this product.
The Eee Keyboard is a PC with a QWERTY, minus the number pad. In place of the numpad, lies a 5-inch 800 x 480 resolution touch screen. This keyboard comes equipped with an Intel Atom N270, 16-GB SSD, 1 GB memory, VGA and HDMI outs, a few USB 2.0 ports, and support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. All this packed into a slick looking keyboard with the bonus of segregated keys, similar to something you would find on a Mac.
ASUS has seen success with its Eee PC series and now they hope to duplicate the same with their Eee Keyboards. But we feel that this might not be that great an idea. Sure the concept is good, but looking down at the keyboard while typing is bound to strain one’s neck. This is pure speculation, of course, we won’t know what to expect until we get our hands on the unit, which should be soon.
