he Eee keyboard PC consists of a regular-sized keyboard with a 5-inch touch display set off to the right-hand side – nothing particularly special there. But lurking beneath this innocent-looking framework is much more than you expected. Under the I, O and P keys lies an Intel Atom N270 (1.6 GHz) processor, meanwhile there’s also a single DIMM slot with 1 gigabyte of DDR2 memory and a built-in battery that boasts up to four hours of power. The miniature touch display is mostly used for widgets – you can fit nine on the panel – much like a SmartPhone. The display also functions as a touchpad and mouse buttons. The screen is activated by a tap which initiates a click and the side display will support multi-touch gestures. If you want to run Windows XP Home – the most likely option given the 16-GB SSD capability – you’ll need an external display. A separately purchased WiCast HDMI kit will allow you to transmit wirelessly from up to 5 meters (about 16.5 feet) away and is capable of streaming 720p and 1080i content. A Broadcom HD decoder chip is also installed to improve playback. The Asus Eee Keyboard PC should retail for between USD499 to USD599.
