DIY ASUS Eee PC touchscreen kit under $100

DIY ASUS Eee PC touchscreen kit under $100

The news that ASUS is considering a touchscreen version of the Eee PC seemed like a pretty natural progression, but if you're unwilling to wait until the official EeeTablet then this DIY kit seems the cheapest way so far to add touch functionality to the 7-inch notebook.  Consisting of the touch panel itself, together with a controller board (that keeps your webcam working while also adding two extra USB ports) and the tools necessary to fit it, it's apparently as easy as unscrewing the bezel and plugging in a few cables.  They're also offering optional Bluetooth.

Touchscreen 40GB Eee hack on eBay for crazy $3,200

Could you ever bring yourself to spend more on a ASUS Eee than the price of a new MacBook Air, Lenovo X300 or Sony VAIO TZ?  Currently up on eBay for a whopping $3,200 (or open to bids from $2,800), this uber-Eee takes an innocent new 8GB model and adds a built-in 32GB Patriot XT drive, a touchscreen and updated WiFi card supporting A/B/G/N.  There's even an FM transmitter, to play audio through a car radio, and the overclocked ultraportable is running Windows XP SP3 with 2GB of RAM.

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

Tablets took ASUS by surprise this year. The company revealed its two models, the Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider, back at CES 2011 in January, and went on to see the Transformer become a sell-out success. The Slider SL101, meanwhile, failed to appear on schedule, and it's only now - ten months after we saw it first - that units are finally reaching store shelves. Has time been kind, or is this Android tablet just a netbook with pretensions? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Eee Pad Transformer 2 in October as ASUS ramps up supply chain?

ASUS' successor to the Eee Pad Transformer is due in October, according to the latest leaks from the Taipei supply chain, with the company keen to commercialize on the success of the first-gen Honeycomb tablet.

ASUS Eee Pad MeMO 3D official: 7-inches of glasses-free 3D

ASUS Eee Pad MeMO 3D official: 7-inches of glasses-free 3D

The ASUS Eee Pad MeMO made its first debut back in January at CES 2011, but now the company has given it a 3D makeover. The new ASUS Eee Pad MeMO 3D has a glasses-free 3D IPS display, meaning the third-dimension without the silly specs, along with the MeMIC companion headset for music and voice calls, and a capacitive touchscreen that, like the HTC Flyer, can be used either with the finger or a special capacitive stylus.

ASUS blames unexpected demand for Eee Pad Transformer shortages

ASUS blames unexpected demand for Eee Pad Transformer shortages

Shortages of ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer are apparently down to the tablet being a victim of its own success, according to the company's Taiwan spokesperson, not component shortages or anything else. Despite reports that ASUS could only build 10,000 Transformers per month because Apple had snapped up all the available display supplies, David Chang told Netbook News that in fact it was simply down to ASUS not expecting as many buyers as they've had.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review

ASUS has been plugging away at tablets for years now, experimenting with convertible netbooks and trying to coax some semblance of finger-friendliness out of Windows. It's taken Android 3.0 Honeycomb and the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101 to actually deliver, however: an eye-catching hybrid offering the touch-usability of a slate and the content creation flexibility of a Keyboard Dock. Has Eee Pad outclassed iPad 2 or do the ASUS Transformer's two halves not quite add up to a whole? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Asus can only build 10K Eee Pad Transformer tablets per month

Asus can only build 10K Eee Pad Transformer tablets per month

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet launched late last month with tight supplies. Most of the tablets sold out quickly in the US at the various retailers who sold the Transformer leaving many shoppers empty handed and wondering why Asus didn’t just make more. The launch prioritized Europe over the US, but the supply wasn’t what Asus wanted to have in Europe either. A source has told Netbooknews why the tablet is in such short supply.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

Motorola's XOOM had its chance to sweep the Android 3.0 Honeycomb market; now the low-cost slates from Taiwan are here to steal its thunder. Acer has priced its 10.1-inch Iconia Tab A500 tablet this morning at an iPad 2 undercutting $450, while the eagle-eyed spotted ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer at a mere $400 last month before the listings were pulled. Both are expected to hit the US later in April, but how do they compare?
